VARIOUS ARTISTS: Box of Sand: CD

If you’re a regular peruser of Razorcake and its review section, a lot of the bands making an appearance here—like Shang-a-Lang, Too Many Daves, Unfun, Rations, and Abolitionist, f’rinstance—will sound familiar. They, and many more crank out poppy indie-punk of various shades, hues, and sizes. Gotta say while this stuff ain’t always my cup o’ poison, there is much here to be diggin’ and diggin’ hard.
