COUCH POTATO MASSACRE: Booze and Delusions: CD

May 28, 2020

Straight forward and solid pop punk. They’ve got all the best elements—poppy guitar riffs, gang vocals, fast drumming, bubbly bass lines, melodic singing. Mix them all together and you’ve got some fast and catchy songs! They tend to write about pop culture topics like The Simpsons, Rick and Morty, Ninja Turtles, and Army of Darkness. The song “Carlos the Dork,” about Freaks and Geeks, jumps right into a ska riff for the verses and whips into a skate punk chorus. “Boomstick” sounds so much like Chixdiggit! and I’m completely okay with that. Seriously, did you guys get KJ to do guest vocals for that one? All the songs are pretty innocuous, fast, and just super fun. If you’re looking for some nostalgia in the form of song, it’s here. Great for bobbing your head along to on a summer drive, if we ever get to do those again! –Kayla Greet (Saffron DIY)
