BARBECUTIES: Go Down with Style: CD

Really, really good poppy punk in the vein of Don’t Look Back-era Queers, when its music became more diverse and a bit more polished in the sense of tight-as-hell with a good, clean mix. These Germans have got it going on; I have a bazillion records that sound like this, but in no way does the Barbecuties sound rehashed or derivative. Rather, they’ve created something that’s fresh and vibrant within the glut of pop punk. Really worth my time.
