Top 5 L.A. Punk Albums of 2011
If you ask me, FIDLAR is the best punk band in L.A. Even after a blitz of blog hype and gigs at CMJ, they still play house parties almost every weekend. DIYDUI captures their live energy as well as any record can. "Wake Bake Skate" is destined to become a punk anthem and "Max Can't Surf" is an all-time surf rock singalong. FIDLAR doesn't take themselves too seriously on DIYDUI, yet they somehow made a seriously good record.
