Awkward Pop Songs opens up with a fierce guitar lead on â€œOuran Highschool Toast Clubâ€ which eases into a melodic chord progression complemented by Diamondâ€™s throaty and urgent vocals. Throughout the entire record, JANK pack so many different melodies into a single song without being bloated or forced. With song titles like â€œ//eed is Tightâ€ (yes, those are backslashes and forward slashes), â€œVin Decentâ€ and â€œSpilt to Billâ€ it might be hard to take this band seriously before listening, but itâ€™s honestly part of these stonerâ€™s charm. The album does have a few too many filler songs; the 8-bit beats on â€œLoading Screenâ€, some straight up Weird Al nonsense like â€œThe Hat Storeâ€ and then of course, the stonerâ€™s new Kumbaya, â€œ//eed is Tight. € Theyâ€™re clearly doing whatever they want, so why. trim the fat if nobodyâ€™s asking?

Their album Awkward Pop Songs flew under the radar last year, but it’s seeing vinyl release this year and hopefully getting more attention this time around. The trio plays a frantic, technical, highly melodic version of emo that seems to borrow its joie de vivre from the Unicorns and other indie-rock pranksters. Based on the Bandcamp bio Weed is Tight, marijuana probably has something to do with that disposition, so it’s only fitting that they’re sharing their Caitlyn video on 4/20. Directed by Ian Neisser.
