Casket Life: Building a Better Disaster
Artist: Casket Life
Best Song: Thankfully, Casket Life isn't shitty emo. Their song titles had me worried, but their music spoke for itself -- and what it had to say wasn't about a broken heart and an allover-print hoodie. Casket Life dwell in the more "Oy! Oy!" punk sentiment, making for loud, energetic songs that mostly clock in at right around three minutes long. "Pro Beer. Pro Baditude," while it may be the best titled track on the album, is also one of the more sophisticated, layered songs. It sounds like three songs all crammed into one, and that's a pretty impressive feat given the band's chosen genre's rather basic song structures. Also, I'm pro-beer and oftentimes pro-baditude.
