Hop Along: Painted Shut
Buy! - (Saddle Creek)
This Philadephia band’s second album is a strong set of ‘90s-influenced rock with tightly coiled, angular guitar riffs, muscular rhythms and potent song hooks framing Frances Quinlan’s dynamic, impassioned vocals and finely chiseled, narrative-driven lyrics of everyday struggles and not-so-quiet desperation. 5/1/2015 - Don Yates
