Let’s hear if for bands who evoke a sense of nostalgia without sounding redundant. Slap Happy (Denver, Colorado) manage to do exactly that on their debut Prophylatic shock, a record that works as a portal to the mid-nineties punkrock and poppunk scene. Sure, there are hints of early Green Day, Parasites and many other bands, but who cares when the songwriting and harmonies are this good. Songs like Freak Out, Same Old, Kingsley Manor, Cement Foot and These Times are a welcome reminder of the allure of this kind of music.
