MOLAR / PALE KIDS: Split: 7” EP

Molar: One post-punk-rooted tune similar in tone to some of Autonomy’s work, and one that’s a more straightforward punk rager. It’s a diverse display of influences with a seething quality that doesn’t feel forced. Pale Kids: Two tracks of punk-rooted pop. Their second offering, “Consent,” is the catchier of the two, with a nice, head-bouncing drive pumping its heart. –Jimmy Alvarado (Everything Sucks, everythingsuckstv.com)
