FUR COATS: Short Brain: 7”

The Fur Coats are kicking it out like it’s still 1995. Fast, catchy pop punk that hinges on your taste in vocals. They’re divisive; it’s either love or hate. Fumbling around, I began to search my brain for vocals to liken Marc’s to for a reference point. Smoking Popes and No Empathy popped in. Throw on No Empathy’s “Ben Weasel Don’t Like It” 7” and there it is in the intro vignette: “Hi Ben, it’s me Marc Ruvolo…” So there’s that. Comfortable and catchy enough to trigger twenty-year-old memory. Good stuff. Monster brain lime green vinyl. –Matt Seward (Rad Girlfriend, radgirlfriendrecords.com)
