Haute Tension used to rock Miami crowds as Mo'Booty, but its new name offers better descriptors of the trio's sound. The band — one of the most active in Miami's rock scene — offers equal parts surf-rock, psychedelic, and tropical rhythms on its self-titled, full-length debut. The album cover pays homage to the band's home base, with two gators seemingly kissing or eating each other's faces in the sunlight — it's all very "Florida Man." The album begins with the band's 50-second, self-titled theme song, which opens with a riotous drum fill that could be confused for a spray of bullets. From there, the band slows things down for the jazzy, trumpet-laden "Dano" and the psychedelic-blues haze of "Daily" and then perks back up to toy with tropicalia on "What Would You Say." In the end, Haute Tension accomplishes an often attempted but seldom achieved feat: bottling the kinetic energy of its live shows and putting it on wax for posterity.
