Fear of Lipstick Seasons

Fear of Lipstick Seasons
To the rest of North America, Moncton, NB isn't exactly known as a music hub, especially for punk rock, but Fear of Lipstick are undoubtedly blowing the lid off this misconception. Playing a '77 style of garage punk, laced with power pop sensibilities, their sound could easily be compared to trailblazers the Real Kids and the Saints or more recent acts like the Briefs and the Marked Men. Fear of Lipstick have a knack for crafting songs that are infectious, with melodies that beat you over the head until you cave and appreciate the simplicity and brilliance of it all. Tight and precise, each track on Seasons starts and stops on a dime, possessing arresting vocal hooks, swiftly executed on "Alone with You," punchy choruses ("Want it Back") and Ramones worshipping nods ("Seasons Change"). A valiant effort from a band that work hard and play hard, Seasons is a punk rock party from start to finish. (P. Trash)
