Dead Letter Dept. Dead Letter Dept.

The band formerly known as the Stiffs are back with a new name to brighten your day and put a spring in your step. This five-song EP is the first thing they've done for two years and it doesn't disappoint. With more hooks than a Texas abattoir, and songs about girls, the internet, space travel and other weirdness, this is worthy of repeat listening. And if that's not enough, it was produced by the Phil Spector of pop punk, Mass Giorgini. Let's hope a full-length of equal quality is not far behind. (Ductape)
