[POST-HARDCORE] If you have fond memories of the days when labels like Polyvinyl and Saddle Creek were household names and emotionally charged punk rock was still defiant of catchall genre tags that implied little more than tight pants and navel-gazing, Weatherbox might be a welcomed blast from the past. This SoCal foursome stacks layers of jagged riffs and anthemic choruses atop jittery stop-start dynamics in a way that will have fans of Jawbox, Criteria and Cursive dropping their guard and diving headfirst in to the pit. The dude sings like Conner Oberst in need of a cold glass of milk at times, but the end result is the same. Meanwhile, the Front Bottoms’ twisted fusion of folk elements and dialed-to-11 power pop recalls an over-caffeinated mix of Frightened Rabbit and the Thermals, which is an excellent reason to make it to this one in time for the openers for once.
