YOUNG OFFENDERS: Self-titled: 7"

May 26, 2008

I really, really like these songs. Initially, I thought they were totally wild and lacked all conventional song structure, and then as I listened to them over and over again, I realized they were just really fucking good. Like when I saw the Carrie Nations (Georgia) play, I thought they were good but I only bought their CD because they were really nice people and were fun to joke around with. Well, the fact of the matter is that those songs are fucking mind-blowing. In the same way as that Carrie Nations’ CD, these four Young Offenders are pretty fucking mind-blowing—but substitute the folkie acousticness for poppy post-punk—and you have an amazing 7”.
