BANNER PILOT: Resignation Day: CD

Nov 07, 2008

This album is so goddamned good. I thought their EP and split with Monikers were great, but this record is head-and-shoulders above that earlier output. I’ve heard a few people drop Screeching Weasel comparisons, which I suppose is somewhat accurate, but I feel like there’s more of a Rhythm Collision pop punk thing happening here, with some undeniable Jawbreaker action thrown in there. The production is somewhat subdued or maybe a bit lacking in dynamics, but I think it works incredibly well in recreating that distinctive and super-sincere ‘90s sound, intentionally or not. I honestly can’t stop listening to this record.
