DOLARHYDE: Self-titled: LP

Nov 02, 2010

Dolarhyde play really well crafted pop punk and would have been massive had they come out in 1997. The obvious RIYLs still come into play, including NOFX and Pennybridge Pioneers-era Millencolin. All the songs on this record have their own unique sound and style, and all the vocals melodies are distinct, avoiding the pitfalls of the soaring, whiny vocals that turn me off of most pop punk. I’m not a fan of the style, but this actually won me over. This is a solid debut full length.
