DANNY CARNEY CHAINSAW SYMPHONY: Blizzard of ‘82: LP

Continuing with their spazzy pop punk, DCCS’s new LP keeps the good vibes going. Outrageous Cherry comes to mind when I hear these songs; there’s no bullshit here, just solid pop songs. Sometimes you just need some feel-good in your life. This would be a great record to take on a road trip. There’s a ton of variety: horns, synths, digital drums, and plenty of hooks, meanwhile keeping most of the songs near the two-minute mark. –Ryan Nichols (Look Sharp, dannycarneychainsawsymphony.bandcamp)
