One thing Absolutely Not has never been short on is blown-out, hyped energy. Since I first wrote about 'em back in 2011
the spazzy garage-punk trio, fronted by Donnie Moore, has been honing its caffeinated sound, whittling it into the spanking-new EP Haunted House Pizza Party
, which is quite probably the hookiest and most focused of the local band's releases to date. Today's 12 O'Clock Track
, "A Hole in Yer Heart," is part snotty, lo-fi Pop Rocks pop-punk and part sci-fi squiggles—the guy and gals have never not had an affinity for over-the-top synth laser sounds. It's playful, to the point, and catchy as all hell. You can hear the whole EP via Absolutely Not's Bandcamp page
, or you can snatch up one of the few cassettes available through Eye Vybe Records.
