FAGS, THE: I’m with Her: CD

May 31, 2017

First album from this Detroit power trio since 2006. Expertly produced by bassist Tim Patalan, it features twelve songs of catchy rock tunes with bite. “Holding Out” has a subtle nod to Cheap Trick and from there we are off. “Stuck Like a Photograph” and “Got By in Time” can stand proudly next to any songs from Light ‘Em Up. Some may protest that this record is a little cover heavy. I’m fine with it and think their take on The Romantics “Tom Boy” is the pick of the litter. Find this by any means necessary. –Sean Koepenick (Self-released, [email protected])
