Random Record Review, The Plurals, “A Futurespective”

The Plurals

A Futurespective

GTG Records/Bermuda Mohawk (2011)

Remember how Motorhead is the only metal band a punk rocker is supposed to lock, and how Motown is the only pop music that really matters besides the Ramones?

OK, just checking. That really doesn’t have anything to do with The Plurals. No-frills pop-punk, Midwestern rock ‘n roll, screaming post-punk, and obnoxiously wonderful singalongs…these are the elements that can throw you for a loop.  The Michigan power trio’s album is a great and balanced mix of songs that alternate between screaming obnoxiousness and lo-fi honesty.

The bitterness I love in my sense of humor, combined with the earnestness and slight sense of hope we all have to have, manages to turn what could be a pretty generic-sounding punk record into one of the most unique albums I’ve heard in a long time.
