Punk Fox (2017)
I hadn't heard anything from Punk Fox in a while, so I'm glad to see they're still at it. Though I don't always like their records, I can certainly appreciate the desire to keep putting out the records you enjoy. Even better is that this Punk Fox release is by Nervous Twitch, the one band of theirs that I tend to like the most.
While this is still a fun little 7", I can't say that it's been my favorite Nervous Twitch 7" to listen to. I feel like they've turned the sneer way up in the mix this time. The songs are still poppy and the guitars are still jangly, but the vocals are a bit more defiant than on prior records. It's fine and I'm not even saying it as a complaint, I just tend to favor vocals that lean towards the melodic side a bit more.
Two of the three songs on this 7" will also appear on an upcoming full length that the band has coming out. I'd be curious to see if the rest of the songs are similar in style to this new batch, or if they also still have some melodies hidden somewhere.
