Words That Rhyme (Petunia Records)
Another slice of classic pop-punk from Cousin Dale. The frequent Green Day comparisons are apt — Words That Rhyme is aggressive yet jangly, bitter but funny. The lyrics have the ironic self awareness of one’s own ridiculousness that all good punk needs, and the music is both snarly and catchy. Sing along when you’re having a lousy day and restore your sense of humor.
