I’m completely biased on this one. I’ve got a soft spot in my heart for anything from Portland, Maine and an even softer spot for someone in the band who makes the best candy bread. That being said, I (as objectively as possible) really like this album. It’s New England punk in the best ways (dirty, fast, and full of hooks, but not in a poppy way at all). They stick to a well-worn path, but they do it well. It’s dark and angry, and easily something I would’ve trekked across the city uphill in snow both ways for.
