NERVOUS IMPULSE: Self-titled: LP

Serge from the Goons lends his unique vocal delivery to a DC-area supergroup of sorts, with members of Striking Distance, the Twats, The Reticents, Porch Mob, and HR’s band doin’ the twangin’ and bangin’. The songs are on-point, keeping things zippy without getting silly about it, angry yet melodic, and tingeing the whole shebang with a rock/metal influence that never gets distracting or detracting.
