WHISKEY TRENCH: The Good Son: 7”

Oct 06, 2008

Dillinger Four-style of hooky pop punk bands like New Bruises and Witches With Dicks play. Whiskey Trench supplies some of the same ingredients—the vocal trade offs that produce catchy choruses and breakdowns where the music breathes without a wanking solo to accompany it. The vocals sound like Mike and Bobby from the Thumbs, and the production of the recording lends a gravely undertone that you hear when you throw on an old Crimpshrine record. Lyrically, it’s a little too mundane and self introspective for me, but, musically, the foundation is built tight. Overall, a solid record.
