Way Out West, the debut from Denver’s throw-back garage-rockers The Blue Rider sounds right at home on 7” vinyl record. The title track’s yelping vocals and prominent organ and guitar riffing shows off the record’s great retro production values and charged-up songwriting. B-side THTD (short for too hip to dance) finds the band playing with the format, adding a spaced-out spoken-word breakdown smack dab to the middle of a raucous Bo Diddley-style ditty.
