FRENCH EXIT: Guts & Black Stuff: LP/CD

A slightly different take on the rough pop punk formula that’s definitely interesting enough to keep me listening past track one. An upbeat-but-melancholy vibe similar to For Science’s later output, but with a mid-paced, somewhat heavier approach that reminds me of OWTH a bit, but less moody. Even kinda Weezer/Nada Surf-y at times. A cool, refreshing record that folks who’ve moved on from cookie-cutter pop punk might seriously appreciate.
