BORN READIES: Self-titled: 7”

What we’ve got here are four songs of great mid-tempo, punky rock’n’roll from this Denver, Colo. band. It’s a two-piece band that has the glam punk sound just right—coming on a whole lot like old favorites of mine, Slash City Daggers and Loose Lips. All four tunes here are great and honestly, the best of this style I have heard in nearly a decade. The sound is exactly the right amount of loose and tight, which is just what this style needs. The guitar tone is perfect, the drums are simple and solid, and the songwriting and vocals are top notch. Really looking forward to a full length before too long. The Born Readies are doing it right.
