PAPER FLEET: Prairie Fires of the Great West: 7”

A two-song 7” by a four-piece band from New York that comes packaged with a nifty four-page comic book and includes a download coupon to get both tracks on the record, along with five bonus tracks I didn’t have time to review. The first song in the record is a bouncy and fun little number entitled “Out West,” which is some lighthearted melodic punk tinged with garage rock. However, to quote Public Enemy, the B Side wins again and again with a tune entitled “Plane Crash,” being stylistically similar, but more energetic and powerful than the lead track.
