Dead Broke / Cat Dead Details Later (2017)
I've reviewed a couple of other Notches records previously. Since I dug those, it was a no brainer to pick up the new 7" when Dead Broke announced it was coming out. I've always enjoyed the band, but even I wasn't prepared for how great this 7" is.
Notches have always hung their hat on the sort of 90's sounding melodic punk rock that I enjoy so much. On Change My Mind, they've really emphasized the melodic part of the equation. The songs are all so catchy with gigantic choruses. Think of Rumspringer meets Fig Dish (maybe?) or any of your favorite East Bay rockers mixed with one of those 90's used bin champions like Super Deluxe or Treble Charger.
No matter how you want to make your comparison, what is undeniable is how great the songs are on this 7". Notches are a band truly coming into their own and now I'm eagerly awaiting their next set of songs.
