YOUNG ROCHELLES, THE: Self-titled: LP

This extremely catchy pop punk LP is the debut full-length from a Long Beach, N.Y. band that spent the past five years playing tons of shows and churning out a series of great 7”s. I am happy to report that this long player is well worth the wait. Plowing through fourteen tracks in twenty-five minutes, The Young Rochelles understand the value of keeping it short and sweet. Lovable and instantly retainable—the way pop punk should be—this album is a hit! –Art Ettinger (Sounds Rad)
