Outtacontroller 

Don’t Play Dumb (P-Trash)

Hangovers! They’re everywhere, but they’re especially present on 
Outtacontroller’s criminally catchy and very consistent debut LP. Doubled up bratty vocals, sweet harmonies and relentless punk fuzz propel this album happily along, through tales of drugs, drinking, fights and hanging out in graveyards---I didn’t think Halifax had guys this tough, honestly. Sometimes venturing into creepy lyrical territory (“Pointed At You,” “Pink Pocket Knife”), the bulk of the album (especially with standouts like “Gotta Deal With Neil” and “Graveyard Kid”) has Outtacontroller keeping things on the straight and narrow highway of being young, dumb and full of come.
