Valley Boys: Drone Attack 7"
New 4-song EP from this Toronto band featuring members of Brutal Knights and School Jerks. These guys had a European-released 12" a while back that sort of went under the radar, and this new EP is even better. It definitely sounds more than a little like the Brutal Knights in the way it has the intensity and speed of hardcore but the catchiness of garage rock. However, Valley Boys (to me at least) are just better than Brutal Knights... just writing more straightforward, classic-sounding punk. If you're into like the Zero Boys / Carbonas / Predator school of punk that exists right on the periphery of punk and hardcore and really combines the best elements of both this is one you definitely want to hear... recommended.
