REXXX: Pure Pleasure II: LP

Jul 20, 2021

Rexxx says hello from the land of Milwaukee, Wis. with Pure Pleasure II: a chuggy budget/pop punk offering with some high school harmonies mixed in. The vocalist has a nice medium range voice and writes some solid hooks, creating a less-sarcastic Queers sort of vibe. “Can’t Help It” has a mid-paced Ramones chug. “Hit and Run” has a one of those tricky choruses that’s fun to anticipate. “Dead to Me” stands out as a punk healer and the most straightforward catchy rocker. –Billups Allen (Big Neck)
