Drunken Boat: wide-eyed DIY punk in the vein of Allergic to Bullshit and This Is My Fist, where the lady vocalist rasps like she’s got carpet burns on her larynx and sounds like all the instruments were bought at the same garage sale. Nothing wrong with that. That said, they’re a little standard, but their enthusiasm’s infectious. Bent Outta Shape: Feels like the tip of a deep iceburg, like listening to just three early Replacements songs off of Stink. You absolutely know that there’s some deep, fun, drunk shit going on and this is just a great start. Includes an acoustic ditty that’s neck and neck with the material on The Tim Version’s country 10”. Man, oh man.
