SUPERCRUSH: “Lifted” b/w “Melt into You”: 7”

Sep 23, 2014

Unexpected release for what is mostly known as a hardcore label. Shimmering alt rock, sounding like Dinosaur Jr, Teenage Fanclub, or Swervedriver. Sounds of the ‘90s when everyone had long hair and dressed like lumberjacks. This type of sound has a place in my heart as it reminds me of a time and this trio has the sound nailed. Both songs have hooks and don’t get into navel gazing like some of these bands can. I wonder if this is a start of a new trend? Hope so. This shit is great, if not particularly punk.
