STEVE ADAMYK: “Better Off” b/w “Satellite/Hit the Ground”: 7"

Nov 16, 2010

This is the kind of 7” that makes you want to just turn it over and play it again as soon as it’s done. On here are three delightfully messy pop punk songs that remind me why people must have been blown away when Phil Spector first started doing his Wall of Sound thing. My personal favorite is “Hit the Ground,” but all three songs are worth your attention. Nothing makes me want to dance more than repeated choruses, driving guitars, and sweet backup vocals. Three cheers for my hometown of Ottawa for producing such excellence. Go get it.
