If there never was such a thing as heady pop punk, meet Three Against Four, debuting in the Indie section with "Hey Sparkle Eyes," a genre-crossing, irresistibly catchy collection of confessionals about bummer breakups and struggles with apathy in adulthood. "Midwestern Psalm," a folksy reflection of adolescence, is like any jarring drive down Main Street, with brief detours through pure rock 'n roll and even funk. On the other hand, the neo-vintage "Boom Boom," drenched in reverb with 1980s excess and pulsing electric loops, is perfect for a rollicking, skeleton-free trip down memory lane. Frontman Brandon Patton's raspy, earthy tenor set against grinding power chords and multi-genre rhythms, is a fitting soundtrack for the universally familiar limbo between juvenility and adulthood.
