Beach Slang recently announced the combining of their two 7-inches, 2014’s ‘Cheap Thrills On A Dead End Street‘ and its companion ‘Who Would Ever Want Something So Broken?‘ into one mini-album release for Australian ears.
‘Broken Thrills‘ is released today via Cooking Vinyl Australia, you can pick it up on iTunes [Here].
‘Broken Thrills‘ is part punk, part pop and all catharsis, referencing the ghost of The Replacements, and offering hints of Jawbreaker, but keeping one foot firmly rooted in the present. Evoking the spirit of punk and juxtaposing it in to something that’s as brutally honest as it is infectiously catchy, there’s something indefinable about Beach Slang’s music.
Hailed as “The best band in America” by Tim Kasher (from Cursive) they’ve built their hype the old-fashioned way without any gimmicks or marketing teams and the critics, and fans alike have been raving about this Philadelphia three piece.
Look out for the band’s debut full-length later this year, and fingers crossed for some tour dates.
