9/10 Mike 21 May 2014
A punk band on Transgressive! I didn't see this one coming. Fist City deal in a snotty and melodic '70s-punk-influenced indie rock style which is one part Buzzcocks and one part Les Savy Fav. The guitars have a tough, crunchy jangle to them, the songs floating on a bed of ethereal discordant fuzz a la Sonic Youth or J&MC, but the songwriting is punchy, immediate and hook-laden.   At times the mixture of pure pop songwriting and punky energy reminds me of a garagier Fucked Up in its grandly self-sabotaging ambition, and 'Endless Bummer' chugs along like a long-lost Marked Men song, but as the album progresses Les Savy Fav are definitely the band I keep being reminded of, especially when they take things down a notch on tracks like 'Cavemans Lunch'.   They've got a nice line in spindly Shopping-ish guitar melodies that wind their way around fast and percussive songs with a gleeful momentum that reminds me of another band-to-watch, Louisville's White Reaper (who just signed to Polyvinyl).
