School Knights

rush s.k.
Bridgetown Records

There seems to be a big influx of reverby, neo-garage rock everywhere lately. School Knights fares better than many bands because its youthful exuberance is not a pose. It's obvious from these four songs that this duo has listened to more than its fair share of No Age and Siltbreeze artists like Eat Skull or Times New Viking — or at least the bands influenced by that music. School Knights never lacks for musicianship, as evidenced on "Prom Queen," where the guitar seems fluid yet spiky as it engages in rapid, precise arpeggios without showing off. Thematically, the guys in School Knights also keep things wonderfully angsty instead of engaging in a rewrite of high school as a golden era that so many of us were too big of losers to fully enjoy.
