Zen Guerrilla have plent of energy and volume on 1999's Trance States in Tongues, but does it come at a cost to the songwriting?

After our chat about the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, we decided to go a little further down the 1990s garage rock rabbit hole and check out a band we had both seen live, Zen Guerrilla, and their 1999 album Trance States in Tongues. Whereas JSBX took a more stripped down and deconstructed take on the blues, ZG amps up the tempo and volume to eleven for a high energy brand of rock. But does that come at a cost to the songwriting? Tune in to find out.
