SCUM AGAIN: Self-titled: 7"

Jan 19, 2012

You certainly can’t judge this 7” by its cover, not that there’s anything wrong with its hilarious burger abortion artwork. Still, I wasn’t expecting a harder-edged version of Fifteen based on the graphical introduction. This Baltimore band’s five-song debut is fantastic. It comes with a download card for easy digital access when not hanging by the turntable. Sometimes sounding as much like a known singer as Scum Again’s vocalist does (he really is a dead-on Jeff Ott doppelganger) can be a curse, but who wants to listen to that silly born again dude from Fifteen anymore anyways? I’ll take Scum Again instead.
