Better Times- Better Measures EP review

Better Times- Better Measures EP review
This group is a contemporary take on youth crew, positive and slightly left-leaning in politics; it’s fun two-stepping music and sing-a-long jams for those who prefer hardcore over punk rock.  You’ve heard these kinds of songs before, so don’t expect a new take on old music- that being said, this is among the better groups in that (sort of) east coast hardcore wave sweeping New York, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, and Virginia.  Reading the lyrics, at least these guys are grounded and not part of some hardcore celebrity and popularity game.  In other words, these guys probably live the words they sing, simple as they may be.  I really dug the bass lines and the mentioning of the Occupy movements- if you like Youth of Today, Bold, Ten Yard Fight, or Floorpunch, these guys won’t steer you wrong.
