Debut 7" from this Nashville punker! Cool stuff for fans of the sound coming out Northwest Indiana.

Our take: Debut vinyl from this Nashville project (I think it’s a one-person band). The person behind Spodee Boy actually dropped by the store while on tour with his other band and mentioned this project, noting that it was in a similar vein to a lot of Northwest Indiana stuff like DLIMC, Coneheads, Liquids, et al, and the similarities to that sound are pretty obvious with its raw production, Devo-inspired mechanical-sounding (but as far as I can tell acoustic) drums, but willingness to engage with a lot more melody and traditional pop songcraft than most noisy DIY punk bands. I think it’s pretty much a given that if you’re into that sound—particularly Liquids’ rawer cassette releases—that you’ll really enjoy this too, but I’ll also say that Spodee Boy can get pretty far out there. While some bands / songs in this style can almost start to sound like pop-punk with rawer production, Spodee Boy seems more grounded in a Hardcore Devo / Electric Eels type of thing. Definitely recommended if you’re still enjoying pulling on this thread of current punk.
