NOGOODS: Lets Be Friends: CS

Fuzzed-out, sped-up garage punk à la Jay Reatard. Starts off loud and never lets up, my favorite attribute. For eight songs, this is almost pitch-perfect for a band that’s never released anything before. Catchy, dirty, and loud. This one’s worth pulling out your old boombox to bring with you to the skate park. Jam some Nogoods while flipping some gnarly shreds and you’re bound to have a good time. Grade: A-.
