BOILERMAN: Self-titled: EP

Boilerman is a Chicago power trio, busting out scrappy, hardcore-tinged pop punk with manic precision. The record is less than ten minutes long, but there’s enough relatable anger and anxiety to go around. Listening to a Boilerman record isn’t the same as watching them perform while someone tries to climb up your back to use you as a diving board. Or at least I imagine they inspire such activities.
