SURROGATES, THE: Demo II: Fall 2010: CDEP

Mar 17, 2011

A very promising five-song demo that clocks in under ten minutes. The first track is a very engaging post-rock instrumental, but the following four tracks are firmly in the melodic punk camp. Regardless of genre, all five songs immediately struck me far above average. Overall, this album plays well to the Razorcake audience, straddling the sweet spot of catchy melodies but with the appropriate grit for a punk rock release. Fans of bands like Dan Padilla, Chinese Telephones, and Tiltwheel should be coming to this like ducks to water.
