BLOODTYPES, THE: Just Your Type: CD

According to their website, they’re self-described “prog-punkers.” While I ain’t hearin’ the “prog” part of the equation, I am definitely hearin’ the “punk”: simple, catchy, thuddy punk at that, with names like “The Day the Sun Explodes,” “Anti-Social Media,” and “Radiation Sickness.” As with many of their Northwestern peers, they take that SoCal beach punk template and just run riot with it—hooks aplenty, pummeling power chords, and some nice backup vocals to boot, with the results sounding reminiscent of both The Epoxies and something that could slip in on Dirtnap’s roster without anyone blinking an eye.
