POPPETS: Pre-Party: 7” EP

Oct 28, 2008

Sometimes the whole lo-fi approach actually detracts rather than adds to a band’s efforts, as is the case here. It sounds like they’ve taken what was originally a decent recording and intentionally dropped out the high and low ends to give it that lo-fi sound, but what they’ve actually managed to do is zap all the punch out of the tunes. As it stands, the songs aren’t bad in a simplistic punk/pop Loli And The Chones-lite kinda way, but I’m sure this would’ve been a stunner with some power behind it.
