Ok. I admit that punk has never really been my thing... For some unknown reason most of it just never clicked with me. Not for lack of trying, mind you, but anyway that may be changing with the release of The Hatepinks' second full-length release, Plastic bag Ambitions.
What to expect when you spin this one? Well first off, this is a short ride - the whole disc tops off at a mere 16 minutes and 28 seconds. I actually had listened to it 3 times through without realizing it. Most of the songs are very similar in style, tempo, and structure. It kind of reminds me of a new wave punk thing with some electronic effects thrown in for color. The production is clean but, still, this disc has a very raw energetic feel to it. It is hard not to get swept up in the energy...
All in all this is a very fun CD! These four snotty French guys (who seem to hate a lot more than just the color pink) kick out some upbeat tunes with lots of excitement and sass.
Standout tracks: Girl Migraine, Kissing Cops With My Ass
