ADAM WIDENER: Cola Kids Hanging Out in the Bubble Dome: 7”EP

Pogo much? This is skinny ties and horn rimmed glasses kinda music. Out of San Francisco, Adam’s four pop punk tracks with snappy melodies and tight 4/4 rhythm maintain a continuous playlist of bounce-happy jams. Easy to sing along to, “CC.MM.YY.KK”, and the title track are a fine mock up of Buzzcocks meets The Kinks. Inventive garage riffs and harmonies make this a stand out in this genre. If you’re in need of a little sunshine in these winter months, pick this up. Recommended.
