REVIEW: [B]CLOAK/DAGGER[/B] 7"
I’ve been singing the praises of Cloak/Dagger for quite some time now. Their 2006 full-length We Are (which was my #1 album of that year) is still constantly played on my iPod, turntable, cd player, what have you. Now the boys are back with a brand new “untitled” 7-inch for Jade Tree Records. And jesus christ, they’ve done it again. Cloak/Dagger can do no wrong!
Read more after the jump.
They are seriously one of the more under-appreciated punk bands out there. The two songs, The Adolescents-inspired “Surf Song” and Hot Snakes-esque rumble of “Concentration Camp,” aren’t that much different from their last album but hey, if it ain’t broke, why fix it? I’m certainly not complaining one bit.
Cloak/Dagger are one of the best punk rock bands around and these two songs make me want a new record even more. I just read on their site that they are planning on getting in the studio this spring, so I’m hoping it won’t be long until I get my wish. I won’t give you a top ten list this time around; just go get this now.
