FIGHTING THE VILLAIN: First Impression: CDEP

My first impression? This is Paramore 2.0. Is that a good thing? Maybe for some people (people with swoopy bangs who are about to evolve from emo kids to hardcore kids, and eventually become hipsters once they’re legal drinking age), but not me. The good thing about this album is that I discovered the band the Downer Party on their label’s homepage when I was trying to find an address.
