Aunts crack and sizzle in new EP "The Last Great Place"

BOOM! POW! KABAM! That is how the music of Hartford’s Aunts cracks, and more so in their latest record The Last Great Place. “Open Space” erupts in such fashion that nothing is missing: from the revved-up electric guitars to the classic pop-punk screams that move in unison with the powerful rhythms of the track, all exists vivid as can be. “Canon” brews for a while, very hot and all, as it eventually pours out a furious drum pace sizzling. “Zihuatanejo,” an ode to the band’s last EP, lets the softer side of pop-punk show with sweet hooks that beg you join in. Overall the record is a refreshing listen for all who love this brand of alt-rock worth discovering time and time again; stream “Canon” below for a punchy good time. - Rene Cobar
