EP Review: Sun Down California

Title:  Sun Down California (BandCamp, Amazon, iTunes)
Artist:  Val Ventura (Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, BandCamp, YouTube, MySpace)

Val Ventura’s Sun Down California is one of the best pop punk releases of past few years.  Channeling the energy and hooks of ‘90s pop punk greats, Ventura takes the genre and makes it her own.  Recorded at the legendary Sonic Iguana with Mass Giorgini behind the board (and on bass), Ventura played all remaining instruments and in the process put together three classic songs that would sound perfectly at home next to any of the classic releases from Lookout and Dr. Strange Records.  Fans of pop punk need to check out Sun Down California, you won’t be disappointed.
