PUP "Morbid Stuff (Little Dipper)"
The latest from Toronto pop punk purveyors Pup doesn’t, at first listen, stray too far from their tried and true pop punk origin story. But the deeper you dig, the more their new LP Morbid Stuff (Little Dipper) reveals. I mean, are there scream-along verses? Yes. Are there plenty of power chords? Sure. Is that it? Nope. There are also intricate guitar lines, sonic shifts, and more hooks that you can shake a now-problematic copy of Pinkerton at. The dudes seems to be working through some shit here (after all, they DID name the record Morbid Stuff) but the only thing more fun than listening to the new Pup record is seeing Pup live. Holler along to “Kids.”
