NEW SWEARS: Junkfood Forever, Bedtime Whatever: LP

Nov 02, 2015

Harmless, neon hat-wearing, party boy punk shit. Honestly, I’d like to just have that sentence as New Swears Junkfood Forever, Bedtime Whatever full review. But that would be lazy. Honest, but lazy. They have some downright terrific melodies and the musical chops to really crank out some sweet, catchy punk, but it lacks lyrically. Some lazy dumbass lyrics about “lines on the road/ lines up my nose/ prostitute’s the only pussy I know.” Still, Junkfood Forever, Bedtime Whatever is a sassy, xylophone-chiming, “whoo-ooo” laden mix of Strokes, White Fang, Memories, and Vampire Weekend jam out. It’s upbeat and utterly harmless; no fists were thrown and no minds to be blown. LP cover art is a bunch of half-naked, sleep-deprived, k-hole-lovin’ party boys rife with what looks like the contents of my college pad’s garbage can strewed upon their bodies. *Shrugs shoulders.*
