Angel Du$t – “Pretty Buff” LP
Hardcore guys from hardcore bands – Baltimore’s Turnstile and Trapped Under Ice in this instance – playing music that isn’t hardcore. It could be a terrible mistake. But… may I suggest you take a well deserved break from the noise and the angst, and enjoy some big-fat foot-tapping tunes instead. While retaining the muscle and velocity of the previous two albums, Pretty Buff ups the classic radio rock-and-pop influence to even higher levels, making a celebratory album that is a fun and uplifting blast of fresh air.
