SKULLCRANES, THE: Columbia Heights Nights: CD

Humorcore punkers, The Skullcranes, barrel out of the starting gate. With galloping garage punk rhythms and solid beats, the album revolves around beer, being broke, and smoking herb. “Douche” throws in a banjo as a comical oddity to bridge verses, but “Jessica Lange,” who they have an unexplainable crush on, is my favorite track, hands down. Funny stuff for those who like to laugh while they’re circling the pit. Recommended.
