I can't even hear the name CHAPPO without being immediately transported back to 2012. My boss at the time was a fan of the band, and they were indicative of the sort of exciting up-and-coming acts that I was discovering every day in my first stretch living in NYC....
But CHAPPO doesn't pump the same unique vigor into all of their efforts here. Opener "What Are You Kids On?" feels a bit like a misfire, and others in the collection are a bit too fringe ("Native Savage" with its wacky breakdown, for example) or a bit too vanilla....
CHAPPO is an energetic rock band, making a case for pumping blood into the tired old genre of dance rock....
