(record review)Trophy Jump-Live at Kesbri Studios

Trophy Jump come from capitol of Croatia, Zagreb and are part of JeboTon collective. This is their newest release and I listened to the record and wrote a short review for this zine.

This 3 songs were recorded in Bolton, UK during the band˙s first UK tour and they serve as a memorabilia from that tour and also as a teaser for the new material on which the band works right now. What I love about Trophy Jump is that they play no bullshit simple old school melodic skate/punkrock without complicating things. Don`t get me wrong, these guys know how to play and the material is awesome, but they this is not the music for the fans of more technical melodic punk escapades. The vocals kinda remind me of early Fat Mike in some songs, but a little more snotty but in combination with the music they sound good. Of the three tracks, the best one for me is Remete Hills, a nostalgic song about home and the neighbourhood and the city from where you come from. Also, get the first album on Bandcamp and check out qualitiy skatepunk melodic music.
