Check Out Star Party
For starters, I’m passing on a “check this out” that I got from a friend, and they were definitely right that we should all listen to some Star Party. The Washington bunch just dropped this 4 song EP, with a few fresh rippers and a couple of covers, one of which gives a nod to the Shop Assistants…so you know they’ve got tastes. It’s got that sort of sugary side of the Ramones in there, buzzing guitars and big swirling hooks…though imagine if you took that and ran it through some noisy machination, burying the pop sensibility beneath layers of squalling feedback. I dig it. Do you?
