1208 -wt Turn Of the Screw -wl Epitaph -wf 1208’s Turn of the Screw will attract fans from all genres. This album offers the untainted sound of punk, featuring the natural, organic sound of a west coast punk singer. 1208 entertains you with every song, adding different melodies to each tune. “Time To Remember” deals with the issue of understanding time: “I wanna take time to remember / Cause I always make time to forget / When it usually ends in disaster I know it’s not over yet.” It concludes, “I’m living in my head and it’ll be okay.” -wm Turn of the Screw is not politically driven. The songs on here are about bad break ups, good break ups and contemplating life. “All I Can Do” demonstrates a trait that has become increasingly rare in punk, self-evaluation with poetic thought: “It’s all right, sometimes my darkness it does shine / it’s for those who finally took a look inside / and saw a stranger looking at the world.” -wm 1280 is certain to be met with great adulation as more people become familiar with them. All they have to do is keep making records like Turn of the Screw. -wd Epitaph Records: http://www.epitaph.com/ -wb Julio Torres
