listen to Direct Effect’s debut album, ‘Sunburn’
by Andrew Sacher
As discussed, Orlando punks Direct Effect have signed to Tiny Engines (The Hotelier, Cayetana) for their debut album, Sunburn, which is due out next week (3/11). Not unlike Fucked Up, the album takes the harsher vocals of hardcore and combines them with the major key power chord riffage of punk's garagier early days. No 70-minute rock operas for Direct Effect just yet, but it's still a fresh sounding record in a genre that doesn't always pride itself on mixing it up.
You can pre-order the album at the Tiny Engines webstore, but if you'd like to hear it first, you can check out a stream of the entire thing, which premieres in this post. Listen to that, with their list of dates -- none in NYC, but there's a Philly show with Bad Side & Little Big League, and a Boston show with Swearin', California X & Potty Mouth -- below...
