Snuggle!

Tuesday, November 24, Blast-O-Mat, www.myspace.com/blastomat.

With pop punk having pretty much become a parody of itself these days, it's difficult to be surprised by anything that anyone playing that kind of music has to offer. So how is it that a bunch of kids from Seattle got together to form a melodic, poppy punk band without sounding hopelessly reactionary? By remembering that taking the edge off in order to appeal to a mass audience is what killed a lot of so-called punk rock to begin with. The raw and unfettered emotional turmoil transmogrified into joyful and cathartic blasts of fun punk rock that this band seems hell-bent on performing doesn't seem one iota faked or wearily premeditated. If anything, Snuggle! is reminiscent of the late, great Teenage Harlets in its ability to make a familiar musical style seem exciting again.
