The Matchup’s Turbo Power Excellent is six songs of catchy acoustic Midwestern punk (imagine Banner Pilot unplugged). The band’s dueling guitars and vocals makes for a blended sound that gives a much larger feel then one would think you’d get from two guitars and two singers. In a lot of ways there’s not a lot to say about this EP other than it’s really good; all six songs are catchy and played very well, the production is great and simple, and at the end you’re left with the feeling of wanting more. Fans of Dillinger Four, Banner Pilot, and Red City Radio that like their punk rock played with acoustic guitars should definitely check out The Matchup.
Thanks to Dying Scene for the find.
