BOATS: Black and White: LP

Been a good minute since I last saw a release from Modern Action (the label), and it’s great to see they haven’t thrown in the towel just yet. Boats are well suited to the label’s sound, falling somewhere between the Briefs and Modern Action (the band), showcasing brief, catchy bits of thud-punk with sonic roots pulled deep from West Coast—especially Southern California—punk’s first wave DNA. Shit’s bouncy, anthemic, and sure to get the party started. –Jimmy Alvarado (Modern Action)
