NRA: Machine: CD

These seniors of the Amsterdam scene are back with a new record and distro through Gearhead in the USA. The music is great pop punk that carries the same feelings of later Ramones records and even reminds me at times of J Church with a touch of rock’n’roll. The choruses are all catchy. It’s one of those records that, at first listen, it just blends into punk homogeny, but after a few listens it really digs into your brain and, days later, some song will be playing in your head that you just can’t place. The tune you can’t get out of your head sounds like a bunch of bands, and you really dig the song, but you just can’t figure out what the hell it is. Then when you finally remember listening to this record it dawns on you that these guys are really good.
