Whiskey Trench’s “Television” is a feisty mid-tempo punk album in the time-honored Naked Raygun / Jawbreaker tradition. However, this French Canadian foursome takes some interesting twists and turns on the new album that one might not expect. The track “Vicious Sore” features definite moments of Screeching Weasel-esque vocals and standout track “Lifelong Sentence” sounds as if it could have easily been a part of Social Distortions earlier punker records. Interspersed between the catchy raging anthems are a couple of excellent instrumental tracks that bring to mind early rockers The Kinks. Lyrically it is introspective, musically the foundation is built tight.
