THE MENZINGERS 'After The Party' LP
For their fifth full-length, "After The Party," The Menzingers set out to make the quintessential jukebox record: an unstoppably melodic album primed for bar-room sing-alongs. Delivering anthemic harmonies, furious power chords, and larger-than-life melodies, the Philadelphia-based garage-punk four-piece amply fulfills that mission while achieving something much more deeply nuanced. With its delicately crafted storytelling and everyman romanticism, "After The Party" ultimately proves to be a wistful but life-affirming reflection on getting older but not quite growing up.
