Details"The first thing that leaps out at me is how much Notches are able to capture a real chaotic, but still supremely catchy, energy on this album. They're able to combine higher pitched, melodic vocals and a fuzzed out, crunchy guitar sound that is always on the bleeding edge of being in the red. Combine that with a drummer that sounds like he is beat the absolute shit out of his drum set and you've got yourselves a potent little band. Notches remind me so much of early Rumspringer and that's high praise from me as I love that band (Side note: does anyone know if Rumpringer is still a band? Haven't heard anything out of them in quite some time).
I say this in the most endearing way I possibly can: Notches are the absolute best kind of sloppy pop. If you long for the days of bands like Corduroy or if you've taken a shine to something a bit more current like Hooper, I really can't imagine that Notches wouldn't also be right up your alley." -IBuyTooManyRecords blog
