MAYFLOWER: Lighter Fluid: 7″

I love reviewing records that fit what I call The Razorcake Sound: pop punk with gruff vocals, played as if the band’s lives depended on rocking it. I implore you readers to check it out and then I get that satisfying feeling like when you set two cool friends up on a date and they start going out, or you take a buddy with specific taste in food to a favorite restaurant and they love it. So, there you have it. Mayflower is from upstate New York. They pound out three songs of melodic punk. I wish they’d come to Chicago and play with Canadian Rifle and some iteration of This Is My Fist. I just took a break from writing this review to get up and play this record again.
