This week: Jr. Meowzer

by and


Guitarist-singer Dylan Eitha-rong: “Lately I've been getting down on a lot of Jawbreaker and Joyce Manor. And the Radio Department! They're pretty sweet.”

Guitarist Joe Johnson: “Lately I've been listening to quite a bit of Teenage Cool Kids, Algernon Cadwallader, Cap'n Jazz, fun stuff like that. Although the most recent album I bought was Duluth from Trampled By Turtles. I've kinda got a soft spot for bluegrass/folk-type stuff. Oh, and Audio Karate – can't forget about those guys. I play them a lot.”

Bassist-singer Cass Jones: “I've been on a permanent Fugazi kick since I was 15. Other than that, I've been listening to Loma Prieta a lot recently. IV is a great new album, and the Das Oath-Ampere split is rarely off my turntable. I like vocalists screaming at me. I really enjoy Aerosols, too. They're vicious.”

Drummer Julio Felix: “Other than the usual Guided By Voices, Jawbreaker and Descendents, I've been listening to the Replacements a whole lot. Fun, poppy and really awesome to play along to.”
