(( RECOMMENDED )) Atlanta's Carbonas!

*** The much-anticipated third album from Atlanta pop-edged punkers THE CARBONAS. "A taut, brilliant blast of both pop and punk. Given the record's running time, there's 'nary a wasted moment, riff or breath, as the band crams in a host of late-'70s/early-'80s Antipodean and East Coast rock influences, and strains those sounds through the Carbonas' distinctively greasy Southern sonic filter."--Bob Mehr, Commercial Appeal

Totally ripping stuff from the same Atlanta scene that spawned BLACK LIPS and DEERHUNTER on the label run by The Oblivions' Eric Friedl. Embraced by everybody from the likes of Maximum Rock'n'Roll to the infamous 20jazzfunkgreats blog, this stuff sizzzzles, charges, and shouts.
