CITYMOUSE / WEEKEND DADS: Split: 7” EP

City Mouse: Straight-ahead pop punk fronted by someone who sings well enough that you end up wondering why she’s bothering with singing pop punk. Weekend Dads: More pop punk, maybe slightly scruffier and/or more “indie” around the edges and sporting a more pedestrian singer by comparison. Decent songs all around, but nothing really dug its hooks into the noggin once it stopped spinning.
