Providence’s Ravi Shavi's triumphantly return with their third full-length, a moody melange of punk, indie garage and retro pop pastiche. 12 gloriously catchy carthartic cuts on limited edition colored vinyl. It’s all here… jangly noir party punk, slinky sinister surf, and laments to long gone love. Their most accomplished effort to date, Special Hazards has got a bit more polish but lost none of the DIY edge. Singer Rafay Rashid cries, shouts and falsetto wails into the dusky unknown while prowling backbeats and Nick Politelli's feral guitars propel toward a highway just beyond the headlights. It’s one hell of an album —cynical, sentimental and stuck in your head for days.
