DEBT NEGLECTOR: Atomicland: LP/CD

Florida strikes again and this time it’s with Alex Goldfarb, formerly of Gatorface, No Friends, and New Mexican Disaster Squad, fronting Debt Collector. Leading off with the title track featuring an intro that renders me agape with its simple yet hugely catchy quality, I get myself full of hope for thirty minutes of enjoyment. Goldfarb’s vocals sound a bit like Cliff Hanger of The Freeze and with a punchy, fuzzy accompaniment, boosted by big and bright guitars, this hits the nail firmly on the head from start to finish. A much repeated half an hour of musical excellence. –Rich Cocksedge (Smartpunk, smartpunk.com)
