BRADDOCK: All That Is Man: LP

At first listen, it’s understandable that someone might just hear another attempt at post-hardcore. With a little patience, however, it becomes obvious that these four dudes infuse their own voice as a band into the popular style that is home to Hot Water Music and Small Brown Bike. Equal parts self-deprecation and “fuck you”s, the lyrics keep a fairly somber mood but there are plenty of breakdowns and catchy harmonies to keep everyone happy. The recording quality is just right, too—it’s crisp and clean but just raw enough to remind us that these guys really mean it. I recommend taking it for several spins.
