NAPALMPOM: The Unconditional Love of Napalmpom: LP

Teenage Rampage Records is really blasting off with a bang, considering the quality of its first few releases. Canada’s west coast has always been better than the rest of the country at this game. Think Von Zippers, The Black Halos, and pretty much every group from Vancouver. I’m not sure if it’s the crude oil from the tar sands in the water or what, but it’s undeniable. Napalmpom play rock and roll, the Calgarian way. Progressive, loud rock with hints of indulgence and maybe even indie rock, but I couldn’t mean that in a better way. It’s the many layers of parts musical slices that keep this record great. I’m sold. Sign me up for the long haul.
