REGRESSIVES, THE: Self-titled: CD

I love it when I get a record to review that seemingly has obvious influences but I just can’t put my finger on it. All I know is that it is great. This Regressives’ disc is exactly like that. I feel like I could list a bunch of great bands that this reminds me of, but it wouldn’t quite do the trick. The music is hard-driving punk rock with good harmonies and gruff vocals. There is anger and social awareness in the words. This gets better with every listen. I am on a mission to learn more about this band.
