Capitalist Kids: Lessons on Love, Sharing, and Hygiene 12"
Killer pop-punk from this Austin, TX band. Yeah, it's maybe a little bit on the syrupy side compared to the kind of stuff I usually carry, but you really can't deny hooks like these. This is like the perfect mix of Lookout!-era Green Day and the early Lillingtons stuff, though in places it also reminds me of Tenement's most straightforward stuff. In other words, it's definitely Ramones-influenced and has that big guitar sound, but the melodies are a little more complex and classically pop. If you're into this style of pop-punk at all you definitely need to check this band out. Toxic Pop Records
