SCARBORO: Here Comes the Hangover: CD

Freshman class NYHC from these Brooklyn locals. The CD started out slow for me—the first track is a shout out to the “Scarboro Punx”—is not what I would call a lyrical masterpiece. So I was a little astonished as I made it to the sixth track, “Archangels,” which for me was a total highlight of this CD. From then on out, the CD never lets up. These guys manage to hang just outside of the general street punk silliness but still sound earnest. Totally well done and recommended. –Garrett Barnwell (WTF, wtfrecords.eu)
