BUFFET: All American: LP

I am utterly obsessed with this debut LP from Anacortes, Wash.’s genre-benders Buffet. They’re absolutely hilarious, but not in the beat you over the head way that would put them in the joke band box. Musically, they’re all over the place, with elements from pop punk and various strains of hardcore dominating the mix. Defying easy comparisons or curt labeling, the end sound is unique, but one that I am confident that a wide range of people in the subculture will enjoy. A veritable buffet of punk stylings, Buffet offers something for everyone. Color me a huge fan. –Art Ettinger (All You Can Eat, buffet.bandcamp.com / Know-Yr-Own / Resurrection)
