• Cobra Skulls - Bringing the War Home EP

    The latest offering from the Cobra Skulls builds nicely on the upbeat tone they set with 2009's full-length album, American Rubicon. Mixing politics with impossibly catchy hooks, riveting bass lines, and an energy that shows up in full-force during their should-be-famous live sets, this EP finds itself with a point to make in solid punk rock playfulness. They even throw in their cover of Bad Religion's I Give You Nothing, one of the better attempts from the tribute album Germs of Perfection from SPIN (cough, cough) magazine. The debt to that seminal band is clear here, too: The despair found in Cobra Skulls' songs here is contrasted nicely with the energized stance and driving guitars and drums that bring it all together.

    The trio appear quite ready for their next full album and, after listening to Bringing the War Home, you will be, too.
