Jaguar Love - Take Me To The Sea

Jaguar Love
Take Me To The Sea
(08.2008, Matador)
Verdict: Fun!

How about another umm..... pop punk album? Jaguar Love is what you get when you take two of the most enjoyable deceased umm... punk bands and sew the remnants into a spaz rock super group. Being the descendants of Blood Brothers and Pretty Girls Make Graves, Jaguar Love had some big shoes to fill, and at first I wasn't buying it. I was initially uninterested because the distinct twee vocals from Blood Brothers Johnny Whitney make it hard not to expect just another Blood Brothers album. Once I finally separated the bands in my mind and allowed Jaguar Love to be their own band I started really enjoying Take Me To The Sea. It has all the retarded frantic brutality that you have come to love from the previous bands releases all written into hook heavy rock n' roll songs for you to finally get your experimental umm... pop punk side down to this year.
