I’ve gushed about the return of Mutant Pop in these pages already. What makes Hold On different than many of the other recent Mutant Pop releases is that it was conceived and intended for the label from the get-go. Mastered by legendary pop punk producer Mass Giorgini at Sonic Iguana, this is the second release from Grimetime. If Mutant Pop didn’t currently exist, Grimetime would still be described as having that signature Mutant Pop sound that was exemplified by the Automatics, After School Special, and the Connie Dungs. Hailing from Ukiah in Northern California, Grimetime believes that 1990s pop punk isn’t dead. They’re certainly doing their part to keep it alive! Get on the Mutant Pop revival wave. It’s been a blast so far! –Art Ettinger (Mutant Pop)
