SURROUNDED BY THIEVES: Self-titled: LP

This Las Vegas band has a red vinyl record out that makes ten attempts to remind the listener what Avail, Hot Water Music, and Strike Anywhere sound like. Nothing wrong with that, but this is really just a watered-down version with less good recording quality. If you absolutely cannot get enough of anything that sounds like it is off the No Idea Records tree, you will most likely like this. I’m off to throw on Over the James for the thousandth time…
