GRAVE RETURN: We Have to Know: LP

Mar 20, 2018

Bit of an odd, but amazing, duck here—modern band hailing from Florida, but they have a deeeeep early ‘80s Orange County undertow to their songs, and there’s also some mid-‘80s Midwestern pop experimentation lurking underneath as well. At times, things sound like a perfect distillation of early Descendents and more recent Adolescents endeavors... and then some Hüsker guitar noodling pops up, or Replacements drive kicks things into overdrive. Strangely, none of it sounds dated or rehashed, and the band clearly has a sound all its own. Rock solid throughout with well-constructed tunes, spot-on delivery, and punchy production. –Jimmy Alvarado (Grave Return)
