GOOD SHADE: Way Out: LP

One man recording project that sounds, to these uneducated ears, like a cross between the swagger of Bad Sports and the glasses-on-the-tip-of-your-nose power pop of Statues. It’s mostly fast, the melodies are impeccable and layered, and it sounds great even as it’s an exploration of dark, gnarly personal themes. Fans of the label or this guy’s previous efforts won’t be disappointed. –Keith Rosson (Dirtnap)
