‘he/she/it is the bomb’ was a popular expression for about one minute, but now no one uses it anymore. But fear not all you linguists! Jeff Pezzati’s latest project will blow new life into the words because yes, they are the bomb.

“Speed Is Everything” not only features Pezzati but can also count Jeff Dean, Mike Soucy, and Pete Mittler amongst its ranks, who have been involved in countless bands in the Chicago area. On top of that the album also boasts guest vocals by Bob Nanna (Braid, Hey Mercedes), Dan Yemin (Paint It Black) and producer J. Robbins. Together they make this a very charming album.

Most of the cuts on here are mid-tempo affairs that are chock full of melody and put together they rival some of the best work Pezzati has ever done with Naked Raygun.
