OUTTA GAS: Meet Me for a Drink: CS

Short run tape of a full length that came out in 2015. Catchy indie/punk songs with the occasional surprise, like the almost falsetto backing vocals on “Hell-Man.” Pleasant, melodic, a little gritty. The vocalist really kicks the lyrics out rapid-fire. Think AJJ or the Weakerthans’ faster songs after a few packs of smokes. If I said it sounded kind of “Dead Broke-ish,” would I be doing any involved parties a grave disservice? Because, honestly, it sounds kind of Dead Broke-ish. Nice racket for a three piece, if not quite a barnstomper. –Keith Rosson (Dead Broke)
