BROKEDOWNS, THE / WIDE ANGLES: Split 7”

New Brokedowns songs are always welcome in these parts. You gotta keep up with how they’re gonna turn the gruff punk genre on its head. Song structure? Fuck it. Who shackled us up in these verse / chorus / verse / bridge / double chorus chains anyways? I hear a new album is in the works, but until then check out the three tracks on this 7”. Innovative and catchy, like if D. Boone grew up listening to D4 and Tiltwheel. Wide Angles also know how to hold it down with honest, heartfelt melodic punk that pines but never whines. These songs leave you wanting more, which is good ‘cause it looks like they also have an LP coming out soon.
