A new band that sits on the edge between indie rock and punk. Feels like a second- (or third?) generation of Pavement and Superchunk fanatics. The guitar work on this record is clever and the songwriting in general is very well done. Ultimately, it feels more like a lo-fi pop record than a punk record, but it’s not bad by any means. In fact, I think the cover, featuring three cartoon dogs, represents the record perfectly. One of the most perfect visual representations I’ve seen for a record. Grade: B.
