CHRISTMAS BRIDE: Dark Romance of a Midnight Wanderer: CS

Sep 16, 2021

This is, without a doubt, the most “hi-fi” recording I have heard on a twenty-first century cassette tape. Almost gets to a Fat Wreck/Epitaph level of production, which is quite uncommon. Add in the near metal guitar parts and you’re really getting there. Really, this is more Hopeless/Fearless level and the sound is quite similar to what those labels were doing two decades ago. High quality but quirky melodicore/pop punk that fans of, say, Millencolin would almost certainly love. –Mike Frame (Snappy Little Numbers)
