INCREDIBLE KIDDA BAND: Bullet in My Heart: 7”

Dunno much about these cats, and thus far my exposure to them has been limited. This is something I seriously need to rectify ‘cause nearly everything I’ve come across by them I’ve straight-up adored, and this is no exception. Both tracks here are blessed with the same sweet-spot mix of punk and power pop that made bands like The Undertones and The Plimsouls so goddamned crucial—driving beats pounding in simple but potent hooks and choruses that insist you sing along whether you want to or not. Glad this is out in the world again for punters like me who missed out the first time to find and fall in love with. –Jimmy Alvarado (Last Laugh, almostreadyrecords.com)
