STRANGE PASSAGE: Shouldn’t Be Too Long: LP

I’m stoked these cats finally followed up their promising 2016 demo. If you like your ’backer to be ricken, you’ve come to the right place: tons of jangle and fast picked leads throughout, with enough crunch to pull this one from pure pop to punk. An absolutely locked-in rhythm section holds everything down as the vocalist throws down moody incantations. I bet they slay live. I’ll bring a bouquet of flowers to throw at ’em– because, unlike Morrissey, they’ll appreciate it. –Michael T. Fournier (strangepassage.bandcamp.com)
