Let It Burn The Expanding Universe

Hailing from the New Jersey shoreline, this quartet have obviously spent a great deal of time listening to the music of their West coast forebears and mentors like Samiam, Seven Seconds and Jawbreaker. They play the kind of driving, kick-ass three chord melodic punk that has been bastardised and plagiarised by bands trying to pass the sound off as their own. This quartet wears its influences on its sleeves and their songs come across more as an inspired homage than uncredited, shameless knock-offs. (Chunksaah)
