CROISSANTS, THE: That’s Tight! The Brat Collection 2010-2016: CD

Taking the title of The Dead Boys debut to heart, this trio from Sacramento hits all the right buttons on the jukebox. There are seventeen songs on this release that will burn into your brain like a red-hot scalpel. They’re all originals minus one cover by Head. “Psychward” and “Don’t Want to Live” are my favorites here and even the demos have their charm. Tight for sure, and a must-have for your collection. –Sean Koepenick (Brat Mag, [email protected])
