WEEKEND DADS: September Downs: 12”

It’s Alive strikes gold again! Hailing from the far Northeast, these cats deliver up seven songs of literate anthems that, barring my warped copy, would be played time and time again. Thick, melodic guitars abound and whoever writes a lyric that references a “Bro Hymn phase” is a poet of the highest order. Full-length, pretty please? –Garrett Barnwell (It’s Alive, itsaliverecords.com)
