Some music can make you smile, and some music can make you grin like a damn idiot. pApAs fritAs specialize in the latter, as in the jouncy “Vertical Lives,” which makes you nod your head to lyrics about geodesic domes. Clever to a fault, pApAs fritAs have perfected a summery sound, part Partridge Family, part Beach Boys, and all fun. Get ready for convertible weather by blaring this from your car stereo.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
