EP Review: 'Only When I'm Breathing' by Textbook

Title:  Only When I'm Breathing (BandCamp, Amazon, iTunes)
Artist:  Textbook (Official, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, YouTubeBandCamp)

Chicago, IL's Textbook return with another excellent outing, the four song EP Only When I'm Breathing.  Following up this year's On The B-Side (Best of 2000-2015) collection and 2014's outstanding All Messed Up full-length, Textbook has once again shown why they are the masters on pop indie punk college rock.  From start to finish Only When I'm Breathing rips with catchy hooks, great melodies, and that timeless feel that makes you question whether this record came out in 1986, 1996, or 2016.  This EP is a must for fans of Naked Raygun, Sugar, and/or Noise By Numbers and a good place to start for those new to the band (as is On The B-Side).
