Punches – It Can Only Get Better

Punches (I think) are the haphazard peanut butter and chocolate combination of Kelly Steven (vocals/guitars) and James Duncan (guitars/vocals/bass). With their newest four song release, “It Can Only Get Better,” the record spinning twosome have developed safe and danceable tracks that wouldn’t be out-of-place at a high school prom or a twenty-fifth wedding anniversary at the local armory.

The music of Punches is a perfect example of what is absolutely wrong with this redundant dismal dj-type of tunes. The music is redundant, unforgettable, and the pseudo-positive lyrical content is pretty damn mindless. Outside of an eleven-year-old girl dancing in front of her bedroom mirror, I can’t imagine many sober individuals enjoying these songs. Punches’ music is weak and grating. Their music has no punch or emotion. I think the title of the album says it all, because if I’m being honest, this four song EP cannot get any worse. It’s so bad that I’d rather listen to my parents have sex.
