The Ergs! / Grabass Charlestons

Split

The Ergs have suddenly become everyone’s favorite pop-punk and with good reason. They contribute two songs of fun catchy songs about girls that will no doubtingly be stuck in your head for weeks on end. Grabass Charlestons come to me as a bit of a surprise. I was expecting either some cowpunk or Hot Water Music inspired rock, but instead I got some fast spirited punk reminding me of the early days of Touch and Go or even Hüsker Dü. I even hear a little bit of Leatherface piped in from time to time. The vocals are gruff but not overbearing. I would love to see this band while kicking back rum and Cokes at the Triple Rock.

Pre-album press releases for the latest Drakulas album pushed the “art-punk” label. Based on Drakulas’ earlier work, I got it – but I also thought it was a little bit ...
