Another Scandinavian masterpiece! The snow and cold might drive people into suicidal depression, but, man, does it make for some amazing guitar music. Hailing from Sweden, Makeouts play with an infectious sound similar to Jay Reatard and Audacity. The A-side on this record is one of the best punk songs I’ve heard all year! (Though to be fair, it is only February at the time of writing.) I could listen to this 7” forever. And there are two LPs left to listen to! I’m going to go hunt those down. Grade: A-.
