Tried to be Punk

Tried to be Punk by Itchy Hearts   (May 14, 2011)

Over the last few years, Itchy Hearts have made a name for themselves not only in the Brooklyn scene, but touring all over the country.  Lovably wild at their live shows and brutally honest in their instrumental arrangements on record it’s hard to not have complete confidence in frontman Andy Cobb and his troops.  Now they bring us their third full LP titled Tried to be Punk (which actually contains some of their softer tracks) continuing on their prolific recording spree.  In a similar fashion to Drive-by-Truckers, the Itchy hearts have reinvented themselves on this record without losing track of their core or taking their foot off the gas. Kudos.
