Highly recommended by Strangeworld.

Originally released in 2002, the A Frames’ debut album was a sleeper. That is hard to believe today, as the record has been called “one of the few great new American rock records” (Byron Coley and Thurston Moore, Arthur), “the best American rock record I’ve heard since 100 Flowers” (Jon Solomon, WPRB), and “a truly amazing record made by a truly amazing band with a truly amazing sound” (Mitch Cardwell, Blank Generation). But back when it came out, people were slow to pick up on it. In 2002, S-S Records was still a young ’un, Seattle was recovering from a decade of grunge-commercialism, and punk rock had settled into a steady 1-2-3-4 count. The A Frames post-post-post punk, with its high energy angles and primitive smarts, was a bit new to the ears. A few people dug their first two singles, but most folks weren’t quite ready for a garage punk attack on Wire, Devo and Joy Division…or so they thought.
