Blue My Mind (2018)
As a warning, my posts over the next few weeks are probably going to be a little sporadic. I'm in the process of packing for a move. If you are a regular visitor, you probably know that I tend to accumulate a lot of stuff. Just packing up all of the records is going to be a Herculean task and I collect more than just records. Also, it's difficult to take pictures of my records when they are in boxes. I'm going to try to post this week, but next week is the big move, so I may not have anything new up on the site that week. We'll see.
Anyway, cutting through the chaos of my life right now we have Triple Junk from Japan. This 7" is four songs of exciting, treble heavy power pop that I just can't get enough of. Guitar chords ring out and couple with a tight rhythm section that drives each song forward. The way the songs are structured reminds me a little bit of the first Gentleman Jesse album, but with a crunchier pop punk influence creeping in. It's undeniably catchy and I really dig this a lot.
Digging around online, I think that Triple Junk has another 7" and a demo CDR. If they are even half as good as the songs on this 7", these are records I need to find. So if anyone out there happens to see them, please let me know.
