TV PARTY: Self-titled: LP

The band name and cover art on this album made me anticipate a goofy Black Flag rip-off, leaving me quite surprised to encounter something more closely resembling an album of Strokes B-sides. I spent the most of side A coming to terms with this cognitive dissonance and finished off the record enjoying it for what it is. TV Party is a sometimes catchy, energetic band with a mellow recording. Recommended for fans of 2000s indie rock. –Liz Jones (Outro, [email protected], outrorecords.com)
