NEW BERLIN: Basic Function: LP

I’m really psyched on this record by Austin punks, New Berlin. Right away, they reminded me of The Spits, which is a good thing. Sometimes, it’s refreshing to hear a record that hits you right away. Basic Function hits you. It’s not some methodical record. It’s one- to two-minute, monotone vocals, staticky, fun, punk rock, that makes you wanna get up and pogo. –Ryan Nichols (Super Secret)
