Detroit's Outrageous Cherry are one of those groups that have never deviated from their original sound—reverent, obsessive-record-collector's interpretations of their favorite Vietnam War–era rock records. Because frontman Matthew Smith has impeccable musical taste and keen songwriting skills, Outrageous Cherry sound like simulacra of canonical psych-pop and garage-rock bands, as well as Nuggets-worthy no-hit wonders. Their latest album, Universal Malcontents, emits yet more sonic sunshine: Earnestness trumps irony, and sweet melodies embroidered with tasteful effects revivify paisley-shaped nostalgia.
