ERGS, THE: Jersey’s Best Prancers: CDEP

CD version of the 12”EP that sold out practically the day it was released. No real subtle way to put this: one of the world’s top twenty current bands puts out eight more songs and you should get it. For fans of: Bananas (pull back the skin and there’s boulders in the bubblegum), Minutemen (tightly wound without tiring the listener), Lifetime (artwork and the clarity of vision), Descendents (ain’t afraid to be young, smart dorks at heart but still shred) and, you, know, great music that has a long shelf life. I’ve hit people’s hands away when they’ve reached to eject the CD before it’s finished.
