UP FOR NOTHING: Swindled: LP

Jan 31, 2018

This falls on the “feeling good, summer party record” side of punk with up-tempo anthemic punk songs, flawlessly executed vocal harmonies, catchy sing-a-long parts, and hooks galore. There’s a ‘90s East Coast feel, conjuring thoughts of bands like the Bouncing Souls, which is no coincidence seeing as Pete from the Bouncing Souls is all over this, having engineered, mixed, and making the artwork for the record. While it’s atypical in parts from a Fest band, it’s done well, and would likely be right up the alley of many of those who make the trek to Florida for Fest every year. –Mark Twistworthy (It’s Alive, itsaliverecords.com)
