Austin Spotlight: The Capitalist Kids Release New Album

capitalist kidsThere’s a lot of music in this city, but, like the song below mentions, people tend to get stuck inside certain circles or genres.  I’m guilty of that myself, sure, but I’m working on it. Perhaps that’s why I suggest you head out to Beerland tomorrow night to pick up the new album, At A Loss, from The Capitalist Kids.  It’s a pop punk gem of a record, with quick guitar riffs rushing forward while melodies flourish in each and every song.  It reminds me that listening to music doesn’t always have to be so cerebral; you can turn music up loud and just let yourself escape into the exuberance of life.  If you’re looking for a good time, then I suggest you pass the time with this album; you probably won’t have much fun listening to anything else.
