SUMMER CANNIBALS: Show Us Your Mind: LP

A proper full-length’s worth of female-fronted pop rock with ample Big Muff leads and solos. The vocal delivery shifts between soothing, dreaminess, and varying levels of aggression, yet never too aggressive. The album might start to feel monotonous, but that’s probably just your punk-addled brain. Listen to the whole thing; the tempo changes at the end make for a particularly strong finish. And lock groove/secret song stuff is pretty fun too, even if somewhat confusing.
