BURNING LADY: Human Condition: CD

Wow, this takes me back to the golden age of Fat Wreck Chords. Not that the label has been all that shabby in recent years, but there was a time when the sounds of their roster were a little more consolidated. Even though Burning Lady describes themselves as street punk, I think they fall more in line with the late ‘90s skate punk/pop punk intersection. Either way, what’s on this record is loud and melodic punk with diversity in its songwriting. Something akin to Tilt with a little bit of a Red Dons twist.
