Angel Du$t – YAK: A Collection of Truck Songs

Release Date: October 22, 2021

Label: Roadrunner Records

A pleasantly short album from members of Turnstile and Trapped Under Ice. The musical style goes on to show that we haven’t reached the limits of the ever-expanding genre of post-hardcore. The lyrical content deals with mundanity of life the beauty of the routine. The opener, Big Bite, goes all in on jangly guitars and ​‘na-na-na​’s. No Vacancy is hugely strummy. Dancing on the Radio features Dancing on the Radio features Rancid’sTim Armstrong and shows their punk rock spirit. On YAK, vocalist Justice Tripp tells us to “fly into the sun just like an alien” and the nonsensical merges a bed of rattling acoustic strings, loosened drums and other soulful sounds. The biting riff on Truck Songs that this band has teeth.
