EARWORMS: Self-titled: LP

Anthemic, melodic hardcore with great musicianship. They throw in the occasional guitar noodle or odd time signature, but never to the detriment of the rockness. And, rock this does. I’m hearing some Avail chest-pounding, some Kid Dynamite smart-guy-pile-ons at the mic, and maybe even some prime All in the complicated parts. Earworms are a three-piece band from Brooklyn. If I was riding shotgun and this came on, I’d do some crazy dashboard to glove compartment to window roller drumming.
