SECND BEST: Fact: CD

Secnd Best is the Portland, OR. punk scene’s perpetually underrated stepchildren. Despite its practiced harnessing of a Bad Religion-esque harmonized fury, its unaffected, irreverent NOFX-ian charm, and its slavish adherence to being, like, really for reals DIY, it just never seem to get the attention it deserves. Help remedy that injustice by checking out the new self-recorded, self-produced, self-released full-length Fact, a mother lode of fourteen tracks that deconstruct humanity’s complex relationship with authority through the lens of the 1961 Milgram experiment. Go ahead. Be the change you want to see in the scene.
