NEEDLES//PINS: Good Night, Tomorrow: LP

Needles//Pins are easily one of my favorite bands out of Vancouver these days. They are one of those bands who you just can’t imagine getting better, but with each record they do. Good Night, Tomorrow is their third LP and continues the trend. Catchy, feel bad tunes are N//P’s signature move, and they’ve pulled out all the stops this time. Incredibly sad lyrics paired with upbeat guitar pop result in me singing along loudly with a smile on my face. Adams’s voice has just the right amount gravel. Imagine a pinch of Joey Vindictive along with a pinch of Frankie Stubbs (this is something I am saying as a high compliment). Maybe I don’t know what I am talking about? Hell, they still remind me of The Beltones at times for some reason. What I do know for certain is that I love this music, and this record is going to be in heavy rotation around my house this summer! –Ty Stranglehold (Mint / Dirt Cult)
