KUNG FU MONKEYS, THE: School’s Out, Surf’s Up, Let’s Fall in Love!: CD

Not the local band of the same name, these guys play happy pop punk (heavy on the pop) that makes me long for the days of bands with more edge, like, oh, Sweet Baby. The songs are pleasant enough, but the happy-go-lucky vibe of the whole thing gave me the creeps, much like the movie Pleasantville did.
