48 THRILLS: Hand Claps and Ass Slaps: CDEP

 

This disc kicks right off with those warm Armchair Martian/Enablers-style guitars and I know I am in for a good time. The band has a real Banner Pilot/early Face To Face feel overall with some good melodic punk sounds and good vocals. Fans of Off With Their Heads would find a whole lot to like here as well. Good, ragged melodic punk from this Portland band. Seems like the average Razorcake reader would really love this. Would like to hear more from this band.
