SUPPLEMENT, THE: Step up from Zero: CD

May 21, 2014

SoCal seems to put a little bit of sunshine in their pop punk these days. I knew immediately that the Supplement were from L.A. as soon as I popped this baby in. Simplistic ‘90s punk flavor over beefy ‘70s rock’n’roll guitar riffs, melodic vocals, a hint of grunge, and alt indie. Comparisons to predecessors Green Day, Jawbreaker, Offspring, and Weezer are not far off. Reminds me of those youthful, drunken sunny days in L.A., all sweaty and rife with baseless optimism. Posi-punk all the way.
