I’ve often found that seriousness is a quality that evades contemporary notions of pop-punk. The genre tends to get derided for either levity or romanticism, while a common tradition of sober tones and even anger tends to be ignored. Yet, before there was a really name for it, Crimpshrine rallied against the social ills and oppression of this world and they did it within a framework of aggressive, distorted pop songs. Warm Needles’ Pretty Tambo easily finds its way into this tradition and it does so without sounding jaded or naive.
