The Whoopass Girls are/where a great pop punk fronted by Ethan. He of Screaming and Dreaming, The Loneliest Cowgirls, Henry Bemis is a Superhero and The Sky Looks Pissed. The songs are great and Ethan has a passion and a skill that is sadly lacking in the pop punk genre today. He is a songwriter through and through and regardless of the genre he chooses to play in his talent shines through. This is an all acoustic rerecording of the Whoopass Girl songs "in commemoration of reaching 297 fans (Forrests' rugby jersey number)". Excellent stuff. Goes even farther in proving that the songs of the Whoopass Girls where really really awesome
Wavelets are a kinda twinkly emo band from Gainesville Florida. The focus is on a more punk pop version of midwest emo. Lots of guitar lines going everywhere and really sad but still powerful vocals. There are a couple of rerecorded songs from Friends Followed By Action and they benefit from a warmer sound. Quite good as always. Wavelets need to get more known!
