Flop - Flop and the Fall of the Mopsqueezer!
It's summer. It may not feel like it here in Portland, but internet tells me it's summer and I'm not about to argue with the internet (that's a battle I will save for the robot apocalypse). Anyway, in celebration of the season, it's only appropriate to post some pop punk. That's right, pop punk is directly related to a season. Also, I am obviously going to be inclined to share some pop punk of the northwest flavor. But HIMK, isn't pop punk the same everywhere? Uh, no... See, we have clouds here... all the time. Pop punk is very sensitive to levels of cloud-cover and precipitation. We, therefor, don't produce the same sunshine-filled, perfectly recorded brand of pop punk that much of the rest of the country enjoys. Think less "college frat party" and more "small basement get-together". Less Fat Wreck, more Sub Pop.... Whatever, now you know. Back to Flop. This is their first release and it is northwestern summer incarnate. Get into it.
