Postcards From Hell
Wow, maybe glam, as filtered through punk, is making a resurgence. If the results are all as good as American Heartbreak’s Postcards From Hell, color me glad. Thirteen songs with gritty titles like “Please Kill Me,” “Dead At Seventeen,” and “Arm Candy” rock hard, yet are perfectly accessible, even anthemic at points. Plus an uncredited cover of the Dolls’ “Trash” shows you these guys know their stuff.
Very, very good. Highly recommended.
