JACQUES LE COQUE: Tip of My Tongue: 7” EP Pop punk hit perfection with Jacques Le Coque. Layered, spider web-thin vocals stretch over too-catchy riffs and an infectious beat that moves your bones to dance. Tip of My Tongue draws on the melody-rich prowess of pioneering punk forefathers Hüsker Dü and adds a granulated grittiness that elevates it to being one of the sharpest releases of the year. These dudes have sculpted a damn fine EP, and it only gets better after each listen.
