Needles//Pins - 12:34 (2012)

The brittle concision of Pink Flag meets the pure pop instincts of Singles Going Steady, and the fact both of those references come from the top of the class of ’77 is no mistake. These guys tap into a similar redefinition of rock moozik fundamentals as that first wave’s urge to kill the king. There’s no fat here. It’s all been trimmed down to their own singular vision of pop essentials. Vocals bark out hooks while guitars grind out their own, and it all tumbles out in an exuberant rush that’s over before you can settle on the couch.
