SIDE PROJECT, THE: New Brain: 7”

Simple, goofy, and fun pop punk from these Midwesterners. It’s straightforward stuff, but I don’t consider it just one of the million cookie cutter bands. Also, I hate to be the guy who talks about what a band looks or dresses like, but there’s a song called “That’s What She Said,” which, I’m assuming, is an Office reference, and one of the dudes in this band is a dead fucking ringer for Ethan Suplee from My Name Is Earl. Let’s chalk it up to the fact these guys seem pretty funny.
