BLAME IT ON WHITMAN: Everything Is Fine…: CD

This is full-blown emo pop punk. It sounds great for being that style of music, which isn’t something I have much of a frame of reference for. But I can’t help but be reminded of the Promise Ring, only with rougher vocals, which is a good thing. They also remind me of a Fluf and Rites Of Spring hybrid. These guys seem to have studied their favorite bands very closely and it’s refreshing to hear something done well and with some integrity behind it. –Ryan Nichols (Big Pizza)
