HUNG UPS, THE: Love Sick: CD

May 06, 2015

This is solid offering of stripped-down, no-frills punk rock and it gets my stamp of approval for that. Musically, The Hung Ups remind me of a slower-tempo Teenage Bottlerocket sewn together with ‘90s EastBay stuff. Songs about punk rock and punk rock girls and sociopaths—can’t go wrong with that, usually. Good harmonies, too, but sometimes they get a bit lost in the mix. I guess I must really like this record, because I don’t have that much too say, which is a good thing in my world. The Hung Ups have been worth my time, to be sure.
