DINGED UP: Mucho Dolor: LP

Jul 29, 2020

Geeky punk anthems from Maryland. Sometimes it sounds like Beat Happening covering The Misfits or early Devo doing a Cars impression—catchy and winning, while simultaneously stiff and messy. Remember that scene in Wet Hot American Summer where the kid who’s been pretending to be a robot all summer summons a wind storm at the camp talent show? This is what his band would sound like. This is a reissue of their 2016 album, and I bet there are some people out there who’ve had “All the Other Girls” stuck in their heads the whole time. –Chris Terry (Snappy Little Numbers)
