(review) Western Settings-Another Year(A-F Records)

folder

Western Settings from San Diego are back with their second full length album out with A-F Records. I must admit that this band somehow always eluded me and I only listened to them more carefully now when this record came out. The new record contains 11 songs of mid tempo emotional melodic punkrock in the vein of Off With Their Heads or Menzingers, with some indie touches like for example in Better, but what is surely to win you over are straightforward punkrock anthems like the title song or Duckets Is Tight enough to make your day better and bring that smile back on your face. This is smart punkrock, played well, with heart, soul and balls and if you are a fan of such side of punk, be my guest, grab this one, you will not be disappointed.
