PERSONALITY CULT: New Arrows: LP

The folks at Dirtnap have, yet again, found one helluva band. Using the prototypical ramped-up punky pop “Dirtnap sound” as a jumping off point, the band adds hints of dark new wave and garage rock, accentuating a magic bag’s full of devastating pop hooks with a bit of sophistication and grit. Fans of Low Culture, Sonic Avenues, and so on will find this definitely hits the spot. –Jimmy Alvarado (Dirtnap)
