SOMETHING FIERCE: Come for the Bastards: CD

These guys mix equal parts of punk and indie rock with a hardcore chaser. While I ain’t exactly gaga over the resulting tuneage, I am mightily impressed with their ability to take those ingredients and come up with something that sounds nothing like emo. Given the sheer number of emo bands in existence, it appears that feat is more difficult than one would assume.
