CHANNEL 3: The Bellwether: 12” EP

One of Posh Boy’s signature bands pays homage to their old label with a spot-on, new five-song EP to bookend with their 1981 debut EP. Their output remains surprisingly consistent for a band in its fourth decade of existence; well-written and deft at balancing hardcore muscle and a strong pop sensibility. Every song here bats the metaphorical ball outta the park, and opener “What You Need” demonstrates they can still kick up dust with the best of ’em. Summer 2019’s soundtrack is shaping up to be a doozy, and this is a most excellent addition to it. –Jimmy Alvarado (Hostage)
