LASTING EFFECT: Drift Away: CD

Lasting Effect is a Christian band from Texas that has mastered the pop punk holy trinity: power chords, Billie Joe Armstrong-esque vocals, and production so squeaky clean it’s blinding. If you like listening to Reliant K, shopping at Hot Topic, and going to bible study, then you’ll worship these dudes. Someone please bring me a barf bag, because Drift Away has had a lasting effect on me: severe nausea. –Simone Carter (Self-released, lastingeffectofficial.com, [email protected])
