Fans of Atlanta’s Howlies, or the current garage scene in general, will find more to love here. The Stunned EP keeps the same template as the band’s Trippin’ with Howlies full-length, mixing everything from surf to punk to doo-wop to ‘60s jangle, but it sounds a touch more polished here. The Howlies also sound more focused, keeping a sense of humor, but not letting it take the sound too far off the beaten path of a solid backbeat or a breakneck groove. From the squall of feedback that opens “Zombie Girl”, Stunned blasts through five songs in under 11 minutes, as if an unruly flash mob invaded your CD player.
