Save Your Generation Records will release the new EP from Fenton, MI’s Lawnmower on Record Store Day. The Whack Yer Brain 7″ is officially out this week. You can order it HERE. Includes a fifth digital only bonus song.
You can check out the exclusive premiere for “Beware Heather Sinclair” from the Whack Yer Brain 7″ on Absolute Punk now. You can also check out the first single, “Team Spirit”, on the Save Your Generation Bandcamp. Also of note, the band’s debut LP, Franchise Wings, is available for name-your-price download here.
Judging by the cover art you might think Lawnmower worship at the altar of 90’s pop/punk but you would only be half right. They also worship at the altar of 90’s indie rock. For those who think pop/punk and indie rock peaked in the 90’s (and who doesn’t?), well, Lawnmower certainly agree with you. “Four songs about life, love, and testicular cancer at Degrassi High.” Perhaps that’s underselling it though? While the band could certainly be considered a throwback to the finer sounds of the 90’s there is also a modern charm at play here. There is also some outstanding songwriting displayed that will bring you back for more.
