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… take a well deserved brake from the noise and the angst and enjoy the big-fat tunes. 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, uplifting blast of fresh air.
