FEAR OF LIPSTICK: Self-titled: CD

This is a pop punk album that treads heavily on the power pop side of things. Pretty all right. Reminds me quite a lot of the Cute Lepers. The thing that really sticks out to me is that one of the vocalists sounds like the American version of Feargal Sharkey. Seriously, listen to “Nowhere Tonight.” Those are some impressive, Sharkensian vocal warbles on the choruses “tonights.” Also, I love the song “Summertime.”
