Sparechange00 ...At First Sight

Taking their cues from bands like Hot Water Music and Avail, and throwing in some new school punk rock, Sparechange00 has come up with something good. This is the third full-length release from this Ohio trio, together since 1996. Their emo stylings add a degree of sincerity that gives them an edge over poppier bands that wind up sounding too fluffy. With 13 catchy songs in just under 50 minutes, this is record that should get this band a lot more attention. (Cargo)
