Jeff Rosenstock – “We Cool?” LP
Known in his early days for playing in DIY ska band The Arrogrant Sons Of Bitches and his musical collective Bomb The Music Industry! on this solo effort – his first studio album, released in 2015 – he switched to a power-pop-punk style, somewhere between Weezer and early Propagandhi. A catchy-as-hell collection of tunes from the single-most huggable man in punk rock. An emotional rollercoaster of lyrical self-deprication and observation, with killer one-liners, easily rivaling those of Jawbreaker’s Blake Schwarzenbach.
