Wow, these guys had me hooked right from the second opener “” kicks in with a simple rhythm and some muted chords. Then it all explodes in a flurry of melodic yet rough around the edges guitar licks, gruff vocals and some ‘hey hey’ gang vocals. Yes, Anchor Arms plays punkrock with that typical Gainesville twist where things sound just sloppy enough to be heartwarming yet still have enough energy left to power a small city.
These dudes aren’t doing anything new but for nine songs, they do this kinda sound just as good as say Smoke Or Fire or whatever. The only real downside I can think of is that the album only goes on for 22 minutes... I want to hear more!
