BUD BRONSON & THE GOOD TIMERS: Between the Outfield and Outer Space: LP

This wonderfully powerful emo album is the second full-length from Denver’s Bud Bronson & The Good Timers. There’s pure angst behind the potent melodic tunes, many of which are about some type of loss. There were a lot of bands that sounded like this back when I reviewed records for Punk Planet from 1999-2007, which suggests to me that they’re intentionally paying tribute to the emo of the first years of the current millennium. You probably think you know by now if you’re into that sound, but there’s a keen freshness to this record that is highly contagious. I love it! –Art Ettinger (Snappy Little Numbers)
