CARMINES, THE: Older, Fatter, Wider: CD

May 13, 2011

Surfy pop punk, though I assumed that meant super reverby surf rock, but it’s mostly straight-up pop punk. I wish there was a little more info in the liner notes, aside from some praise from Joe Queer (side note: bands I like, please ask me to do your liner notes!). It’s standard stuff, there are a few moments that make me start to go, “Ohh brother,” like lyrics about sock hops (only acceptable from FYP) and Little Bo Peep where I can’t help but think “how badly do you want to be in a pop punk band?” but it’s over fast enough so I don’t get sick of it.
