Bad Coyotes: We Got Our Reasons cassette

MMM Records

$4.50

East Coast tour tape from this Bay Area punk band. These guys have a very cool sound that reminds me of quirky 70s punk bands like the Urinals, Rhino 39, and other similarly minimal, angular punk with a strong sense of melody. However, Bad Coyotes aren't nearly as post-punky as that description would suggest, so maybe they're coming at their minimalist punk from more of an early Kinks kind of angle? Regardless, this is some stripped-down, catchy, and energetic punk. 12 songs, so it's basically a full-length on cassette with rad artwork. MMM Records
