BRAXTON HICKS: Never Kill Yourself: CD

This band has already broken up, but they left behind a few EPs. This is their first one and it’s a pretty good collection of mid-paced punk that isn’t going to set the world on fire, but it still has enough energy and fun going on to keep your interest. The four songs go by fairly quickly and are bouncy enough to get you moving in your chair. They showed a lot of potential in their playing and lyrics. It’s a shame that they didn’t stick around to progress.
