SPIT-TAKE: Falling Star: CS

This is very listenable and pleasant indie rock/punk filled up with a mix of catchy pop punkish moments, some late-’90s Midwestern emo influence, and other seemingly solid influences. I would likely use Superchunk as a reference point here, but instead with a layer of DIY basement punk anti-sheen covering the whole thing, which takes the slickness down a notch and puts this right in my wheelhouse. Good stuff. –Mark Twistworthy (Reflective, reflectivetapes.bandcamp.com)
