SWEATY: Self-titled: CS

This band contains folks who have spent time in the Screaming Females and Sass Dragons and contains seven catchy-as-heck, super fun punk/pop songs. Some are more traditional “power pop”-sounding, while others have a more Midwest basement punk feel, and then there are full-on, traditional-sounding, up-tempo pop punk-ish ones… but it all works. This is good, seek it out. –Mark Twistworthy (State Champion, statechampionrecords.bandcamp.com)
