PUSHIN’ IT 2 THE LIMIT: Self-titled: Cassette

The band name and the tattoo cover art definitely gave me pause. But this is not a soundtrack to a film about athletic apparel directed by Fred Durst. That should be made clear. This is bouncy, charming, relentless pop punk with some dark, weird guitar-bass interplay and goofy humor, i.e. they introduce each song by shouting the name of the song in unison. Kind of a Shonen Knife-y thing to do. I feel like if you had a question about a cartoon, any cartoon, they could answer it. Check out “That’s All Murder She Wrote” for starters, and then go from there if you need to.
