THE FRONT BOTTOMS (USA – Fueled By Ramen)
What can we say about The Front Bottoms? We know we love them: a punk band that uses acoustic guitar, indie-rock dance grooves, Springsteen-y keyboard lines (this they might deny). It’s hook-filled… it’s anthemic… it’s confessional. Maybe Joni Mitchell by way of Green Day? They must have heard some Replacements along the way, and it seems like what Jonathan Richman and the Modern Lovers did for the Boston suburbs these guys are doing for Bergen County, NJ. But they still leave us scratching our heads. Just what the hell have the Front Bottoms alchemized?
ABOVE THEM (UK – Specialist Subject Records)
Lots has changed for Above Them since the release of their last album three years ago; line up changes have come and gone, fatherhood, marriage. What hasn’t changed is their ability to write incredible melodic punk rock songs. Water Lane shows a natural progression from where they left off, bringing in subtle new influences and developing that distinctive Above Them sound.
BRIGHTR (UK – Flix Records / No Reason Records)
AKA a very beardy, heavily tattooed and softly spoken Laurie, is a one man singer-guitarist project. Heavily recommended and the best possible opener for this evening we could have imagined!
