HORACE PINKER: Recover: 7″

Since 1991, Horace Pinker has been at it, and I hate to be a curmudgeon, but their brand of angsty melodic pop punk has been oft-repeated during the last twenty-five years. For diehards, Recover is a must-have, as it’s been a while since Horace Pinker’s last release. For everyone else, these three songs retread familiar pop punk tropes: anthemic choruses, simple guitar licks, gruff vocals. There’s no new noise here.   –Sean Arenas (Dead Broke, deadbrokerekerds.com)
