Crusty and catchy, DumpStar are out to prove punk’s not dead in 2020. They grind and rock their way through Exile On 9th Street, their new four song EP. They keep the riffs heavy and the vocals salty, throwing in some power-pop style chords to keep you bouncing along. There’s an anthemic quality to opener “Divine Spark,” with its call-and-response verses and chorus harmonies. They rip through intro of “La-La-La Little Honda” with a howling “YEEEEAH!” to kick it off.

Exile On 9th Street clocks in under thirteen minutes because DumpStar aren’t here to fuck around. They want to ROCK.

Favorite Track: “La-La-La Little Honda”
