NOTCHES: Huge: 7”

Hey, this is pretty good! Pop punk by means of first wave emo and ‘90s indie rock. Think along the lines of Summer Vacation or Salinas Records’ catalog. There’s a dual vocal underlining to the songs that lets the vocals swim and shine a little. Hell, if there were a little more dreamy haze to the production, this might almost be a shoegaze record. Thankfully, we live in a universe where Notches knew to use some restraint and gave us this little gem. I want an album now. –Bryan Static (Hip Kid, hipkidrecords.blogspot.com / Young Modern, youngmodern.storenvy.com / Cat Dead Details Later, catdeadrecs.org)
