Needles//Pins - Needles//Pins

In just under twenty-three minutes the eponymous fourth album from Vancouver’s Needles//Pins harkens back to their earlier releases as they tear through ten cuts of rootsy, working class punk.  While the album is primarily a no-frills, straight-ahead set of tunes driven by Adam Solomonian's ragged throaty vocals they never lose their strong sense of melody. The band also takes an occasional step back with songs like the more subdued “Winnipeg ‘03“  and the bouncy “Stumble” to keep things fresh.
