DOWN AND AWAY: To Serve and Protect: CD

Swedish band that perfectly blends the middle ground between fellow countrymen Smalltown and Bombshell Rocks. Cool mid-tempo street punk with a real rock’n’roll undercurrent. Reminds me a little of the more recent Ducky Boys stuff, which is high praise. If you can’t get enough of that catchy sub Rancid sound, this is one of the best bands you can hope to find right now.
