SHORTCUTS, THE: 30 Pack: CD

Nov 24, 2009

Minneapolis pop punk! Five catchy songs about relationships (duh, it’s pop punk!), including a Carbonas reference! Yay! The local comparison would be the Soviettes. With “Hey! Hey! Hey!” and “Come on! Come on!” back-up vocals! I’m really glad that the current pop punk revival has way more girl-led bands than the original Lookout heyday. (I’m not saying that I want Ben Weasel to be a girl, but you know what I mean!) If this were a cereal, it’d be Frosted Flakes!
