Summer Cannibals - Can't Tell Me No"
Can't Tell Me No is well conceived and well performed rock and roll with a big dose of 'don't tread on me' defiance (personal, not political), arriving just in time for your summer playlists (and for our US readers, your July 4th barbecue). The album is the fourth from Portland band Summer Cannibals, and is their first for the Tiny Engines label. While the band's approach to their craft varies little - expect riffs, hooks, big choruses and noise -- their execution hits the sweet spot and the lyrics have a genuine bite born of fraught personal and professional relationships. This album is the soundtrack of a band reclaiming their professional and personal lives, and they do it with passion and flair.
Summer Cannibals are Jessica Boudreaux, Cassi Blum, Devon Shirley, and Ethan Butman. Can't Tell Me No is out now in all formats. See the Bandcamp link below.
