ADULTS: This Is Our Year: LP

This LP comes with a bookmark-sized insert that implores listeners to “Get Drunk. Read Books. Go to Sleep.” If that were the only formula for making music this fun, this inspired, and this catchy, then every college sophomore would be a fucking punk rock icon somewhere between the likes of Elvis Costello and Laura Jane Grace. Adults hails from New Orleans and this album sounds great. There are portions that sound comforting and familiar, like the gravelly voice and lightning speed, but there are also some surprises like the cleverly arranged guitar riffs and the not-always-so-straightforward beat of the drums. So, to review: Get drunk. Read books. Go to sleep. And, check out Adults.
