CAPTAIN, WE’RE SINKING: It’s a Trap: 7”

Four songs of driving emo-punk. Two vocalists who push it harder than the instruments. They mix the beery weariness of old Hot Water Music and Planes Mistaken For Stars with Dillinger 4’s ability to pile on complicated parts without losing the catchiness. Sounds like summer to me. I do wish they’d included some lyrics on the incredibly ugly cover, because I want to know what a song called “Crushed by Milwaukee’s Best” is all about.
