Wide Angles - Boxcutter - Another rock solid 4 songs from Wide Angles put out, um, last May on No Breaks Records. Much like on their debut 7", Wide Angles show and prove that they are pros at crafting gritty-yet-melodic, tough-yet-emotional mid-tempo ponk ruck music. It's tempting to describe them as "no-frills" too, but after listening to these tunes a couple of times, some rather intricate guitar-work and layering becomes apparent.
Only minor quibble here is when the singer reaches a little too far. The guy's got a great voice for this band, but you've to know your limits a little bit too, you know? But honestly, that is a very minor quibble. This is excellent stuff. (http://wideangles.bandcamp.com)
