IDAHO GREEN: Fuck Yegen, Here’s Idaho Green: CS

Fuzzy, janky, bouncy power pop punk rock with a lot of heart, goddammit. Maybe it’s the clearly DIY production or the way the ever-so-slightly affected vocals and tastefully dorky horn parts telegraph that nothing here gets taken too seriously—something about this band just makes them seem like lovable underdogs. I want to write about them like they’re a Little League team. Like, go get ‘em, champs! Show them what you got! Really genuinely fun. I wish this EP ended with a real fourth song rather than a camp singalong version of “My Humps,” but I guess that’s what I get for talking about fun. –Indiana Laub (No Direction, nodirectionrecords.bandcamp.com)
