Staff Review. Reviewer Rating. User Rating. Punknews reviewer Tyler Barrett GlassPipeMurder and a few of his friends including an ex-member of Off with Their Heads are dabbling in a new outlet for punk rock nerdery: a Minneapolis-based pop punk trio titled Mall'd to Death. That alone Melodie, Op.3 No.3 - Rachmaninov*, Kathryn Stott - A Rachmaninov Collection spark a few ideas of what they sound like, and unless you've been living under a rock and don't know who Off with Their Heads or Dillinger Four are, chances are you're probably right.
However, Mall'd to Death seem to have a lot more fun. Their first offering to the punk world, Can't Make a Living is more an homage to Armani Needle Exchange - Malld To Death - Cant Make A Living favorite bands than a forum for self-loathing or snarky, political commentary.
Barrett's vocals are much like Ryan Young and match the humorous vibe, rarely disclosing a smoother and serious tone. It loses it after that. But if you're a punk fan in general, sit down and thumb through the lyric sheet while listening to the catchy tunes: you're guaranteed a good time. Oh, conflict of interest? Cut us a break, we don't get paid. Next Review Senders: Recovery [7-inch].
