BROKEDOWNS, THE: Sick of Space: CD

Here is a band that has been on my radar to check out and, for some reason or another, I have never got around to it. I need to re-evaluate my priorities. Immediately I was reminded of The Arrivals (which is always a good thing) and quickly confirmed that they are indeed a Chicago band themselves and Lil Dave himself appears on two songs. I don’t know what it is about the Midwest that makes for great music, but the proof is there. This entire album is fucking phenomenal! I feel like I need to smack myself for not picking up on these guys sooner, but I am pretty damn excited that I have a back catalog to explore. Also, “Mommy, Can I Go Out and Chill Tonight” is the best song title this side of a Dillinger Four album. Get this! –Ty Stranglehold (Red Scare)
