Good Throb: Fuck Off 12"
This is straight up one of the most exciting releases I've come across in some time. I liked Good Thob's previous 7"s... they were a bit rickety, super angry and super punk, but they take it to an entirely new level on this LP. There's a dash more melody in the guitars in particular now, and the bright and clear production really delivers the strength and power of these songs. As before, the lyrics are almost startlingly direct yet incredibly eloquent... these are lyrics that actually made me think about myself, my beliefs and my behavior, and when was the last time you could say that about a punk record? Simply put, everything about this from the songs to the performance to the recording to the packaging is just so utterly perfect and exactly what I want punk to be in 2014. Get this or pose hard.
