Dead Broke / Drunken Sailor / ADD / No Breaks (2014)
No, not the purple Prince. This Prince is an actual band hailing from Austin, TX. It makes you wonder how long they can hold this out before the purple one tries to make them change their band name. We'll see I guess.
This Prince is has certainly put out a better record than the other one has in a few decades as this 7" is packed with four killer punk rock songs. They bridge that gap between garage and pop punk in a way that reminds me a bit of Low Culture with furious guitar strumming and big catchy choruses. Though all four are great, the one that really stands out to me is "Tips From Margarita." It's a masterclass in incorporating a simple two note lead guitar riff into a song that just elevates everything around it.
I know that Prince has another 7" floating around out there somewhere and after hearing this one, I am going to have to track that one down as well. This is just such a fun, listenable record and I am very hopeful we'll hear more from these guys really soon.
