Few bands sing with the kind of earnest, live-in-the-moment feels quite like Beach Slang, which has become one of my favorite new bands of the year. These songs crackle with energy, while getting into some pretty heavy topics of depression and escape and heartbreak, while also being anthems for people don’t fit in and find community in the punk scene. It’s a tremendously powerful album.

Check out what else I had to say about the record as part of NPR Music’s First Listen series.
