At first listen I thought, “This guy is tone deaf and these songs are ridiculous.” After a week or two, I still feel the same way, but the pop punk/humor rock band from Illinois has grown on me like radioactive fungus. “Truculent,” their most popular song, reminds me a lot of Cake’s mid ‘90s stuff—white boy rap over tense guitar rhythms. Their Spanish-influenced cover of Pink Floyd’s “Time” is both unrecognizable and excellent at the same time. Recommended. –Kristen K.
