Bomb The Music Industry – “Scrambles” – [Asian Man Records]

Thoughtful punk from Jeff Rosentock. Nice lyrics, and nicely articulated. Introspective, humorous, sarcastic, sometimes with a “miserable 20-something” feeling. And, while including some 20 instruments/musicians, and recorded in several studios on a budget, it plays with a very nice focus. Unlike earlier work, doesn’t include much in the way of ska-leaning tones, except for It Shits!!! There’s a great background story on the flap about how much work the album was and how they managed to do it on the cheap.

Cold“, and “Saddr” more mellow than the rest of the set.
Sort Of” seems starts off quiet, but shifts up two gears about half-way through.

There’s a sample of Ol’ Dirty Bastard’s Dirt Dog at the end of 25!, and a clip from the movie Milk at the end of It Shits!!!

Favorites: Cold Chillin, Wednesday Night Drinkable, and 25!
