The Briefs

Hit After Hit


Excellent punk pop blast from this Seattle band. Fast and furious and fun. Thirteen songs, with the longest clocking in at just over three minutes, and ending with a 31 second burst of energy entitled “Dolly Parton.” High energy slaps in the face, waking you up and making you move to the beat. Like The Buzzcocks, The Ramones, and new wave grooves on speed. It’s hard to avoid getting infected by the hooks, and listening to the CD, you just know that they’re gonna be amazing live.
