UNFUN: Pain Prescription: 7”

Mar 29, 2011

I saw this EP and figured, “If I’m judging vinyl by its cover anyway, it’s not a terrible start to go with a band named after a Jawbreaker album.” At first, I thought something was wrong with my stereo (actually, there is something wrong with it, but further investigation revealed it’s not Unfun). I felt like I was listening to the band behind a wall of static. The second pass through I learned it sounds better when you aren’t sitting eight inches away from the speakers. I think I can hear some slammin’ drums and power chord-friendly guitars here, but that’s all practically buried underneath extraneous noise. Cut the static noise out Unfun, and then we’ll talk.
