STOPS, THE: Nameless Faces: LP

I had been hearing this band’s name thrown around by quite a few people whose opinions I really respect, so I thought the logical thing was to grab a copy for myself. I am sure glad I did. It’s pure West Coast punk rock goodness that makes my blood pump. I swear if I listen to this in the car again, I am going to bend my steering wheel in half and punch a hole in the roof! If you were to dig back into my past Razorcake reviews, you would find that two bands that I truly love are Neighborhood Brats and Arctic Flowers. The Stops take my favorite aspects of both of those bands and create something unique and ripping. I am going to make it a mission to see The Stops live as soon as possible, but until then I have this amazing record to keep me company (barring any auto accidents).
