Jun 13, 2014

Do you like pop punk? I love pop punk! Pop punk is one of my favorite musical genres to ever exist. All cynicism aside, give me a catchy hook, angry bass, and a singer that “doesn’t sound like a barking dog” and you’ve got a fan for life. I truly do love pop punk. Let Down is a review zine based out of Chicago and is a great resource for those interested in pop punk, listing a ton of distros, bands, and reviews. Don’t worry, when I first got my hands on this zine I hoped that the title was referencing depressing stories of mediocre failure and burnouts, and it delivers! At first glance, these stories are just plain downers but they get funnier and funnier as time passes. There are several different contributors offering their nuggets of wisdom in light-hearted lists. Looking forward to the second issue. –Simon Sotelo ([email protected])
