Favourite Song on Album:

Listen to This Album When You’re:

In the mood to take a psychedelic ride through space.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

Yeah it’s really solid, lots to stare at and it’s psychedelic looking like the music.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Yep anything from this label I almost am always gonna want on vinyl.

Final Thoughts:

Jon Dwyer is slowly becoming one of my favourite contemporary artists, with his projects Thee Oh Sees, Coach Whips, and Damaged Bug, there is so much to sink your teeth into. Damaged Bug goes heavier on the lo-fi electronic sound. Giving you muffled vocals and 80’s sound effects that can be both danceable and mellow. Hubba Bubba offers a wide scope of sound that’s sure to keep psychedelic fiends entertained, but is not all too accessible to others not familiar to the genre.
