True Achiever plays nerdy, six-song art punk with a comical, robotic singer. Song titles include “Bro-Man” and “Restless Leg Is Real and I Get It.” They’re the kind of group that would cause people to spit out their caffeinated drinks with laughter at an open mic night at a coffee shop. You can’t hate on a record this gleefully ridiculous. The 10” comes with a download card to access MP3s of this geeky gem. But there’s nothing more endearing than a joke taken as far as a pressing plant.
