RUMSPRINGER - Stay Afloat (LP)
Raw, visceral punk. At first listen, it's a collage of Northern California/Chicago-based punk bands with a palpable energy that's neither disturbingly lacking in production nor ripping off idols. The subject matter is both devastating and uplifting, in a strangely comforting way. Rumspringer has been and remains one of my favorite current bands, and I'm happy to be releasing this, their second LP.
