Swearin'

Stumbled across this sweet little Punk band a little while ago, and just started paying attention to them now.

What we've got is a 90's inspired Punk Rock band. That comes with the whole combo: the cheesy sounding lyrics, the power chords, and the simple layout. And yet, for some reason, I'm still into it.

Give Hundreds & Thousands a listen.


This particular track is well produced for its genre. Nothing too amazing or over the top, in fact there's even some cliches, but it's nice. The riffs sound higher than the vocals, the drums are simple and just noisy enough to be heard.

It's kinda average, it's just nostalgic. This is what music would sound like if peoples musical ideals had frozen 10 years ago. It makes them stick out, but only when you realize the album was released this year.

I like about half of the album. There's a few tracks that just don't do it for me, and a few I could tolerate listening to every once in a while, but that's just about it.

The exception is my favorite track, Kill 'Em With Kindness. It's everything I like in the genre. It's raw, noisy, and angry. It makes me want to start flipping furniture over, and it's been a while since I've gotten that feeling.

If that's more to your liking, it might be in your best interest to check their earlier album out. I can't say it's better, but it tackles a different audience and does a good job of it too.

  1. I'm going to surprise myself here by saying that I really really like this man. I love the nostalgic punk vibes and the guitar meshes in with these vocals in a great way, I don't find it average at all although I could see why these songs might get tiring in the album after a while. I love the song so much that I'm listening to now that I'll probably replay it again so that's a good sign that I should listen to the rest of the album. The way it ends in "for a good time," is incredible!

  2. Don't ask me why but for some reason her voice reminded me of Joan Jett when I first heard it.

  3. Love it. It's got that 90's female led indie rock sound to it. Reminds me a bit of early Breeders.

  5. I'm not fond of the first song as it's got that "feel good groovy" beat. I did however like Kill 'Em With Kindness.

  6. Umm....10 years ago? How about 20 years ago, because I totally had a flashback to age 19! And I am glad I came back to listen in a happy environment, where music isn't blocked and I am in my pajamas!
