Album: Cry Now, Cry Later 7".
Label: Pogo & Cry
1. Cry Now, Cry Later
2. I Am Not A Girl
3. Turds On A China Plate
NYC's pogo masters, Sad Boys, return with their second 7" and best release to-date. Cry Now, Cry Later is more blown out and noisy than the first EP, which I think benefits the sound greatly. Still, no matter how noisy it is, the pure catchiness of the songwriting cannot be contained. Regardless of the new recording quality, these are their best three songs, up to this point. Occasionally, when the guitar leads are at their best and most triumphant, the only thing they remind me of is America. No joke, it just makes me think of an American flag waving in the air. I think that's a good thing?
This single shows that Sad Boys hasn't change up their style too much because there's really no need to fix something that ain't broken. This was released by the new label of two members of the band, Pogo & Cry, so be sure to follow what they'll be doing in the future. As for Sad Boys, I'm pretty sure they have a split coming out with an amazing Massachusetts band, but we'll see what happens...
