Money in the Banana Stand, Giant Steps II

Charlottetown’s Money in the Banana Stand quickly follow-up their 2011 debut, There’s Always, with this short and sweet 7-song EP. Giant Steps II really doesn’t cover new ground but continues with the same ragged and loose garage rock; the vocalist bellows like a folk-singer and the instruments are ravaged, not played. Know what? There’s nothing wrong with that – especially with commercial pop-punk being so clean – it’s nice to hear an album with some sweat built into it. Check out highlights “The Red League” and “Korean Radio Blues” below. (Bird Law Records) ~ 3 Stars
