TAXPAYERS, THE: Exhilarating News: CD

When I say this, I mean it in the best way possible: this band sounds like a cartoon. If punk rock ever decided to start a cartoon show to convert impressionable young kids into the next era’s punk rockers, this band would fit the bill perfectly as the show’s mascots. The sound is folk punk with vocals between Chris from Ghost Mice (except on key more often) and This Bike Is A Pipebomb. All around, an equation that equals awesome.
