Album Review: Beach Slang - Broken Thrills (2015 LP)

So apparently Beach Slang are from Philadelphia, but their album Broken Thrills sounds somehow very English. I'm guessing that they listened to a lot of The Clash growing up, or at least the lead singer did. There's a fuzzy, old school feeling to all of Broken Thrills, from the early-days-of-surf-punk drums to the growly, Joe Strummer vocals. There's a sense of basement shows and worn leather jackets spread pretty liberally over the (fairly short) album.
