Track Listing:

1. Shanghai White Oak Tree (2:17)

Punklicious picture painting. Love the lyrics on this track.

2. Spit in My Eye (2:12)

Deep rick base accompany some piercing fretwork are swallowed by GG Allen-esque vibes.

3. Burning Pt. 2 (2:29)

Steve Martin spoken word? Oddest of the lot.

4. Paoli in the Foothills (6:11)

Off the beaten mellow track that contains some raw off-kilter heart. Give it time to breathe

5. The Delicate (Shipping News) (3:09)

Rivals the opener for best track. Good grinding punk-faire.


Brew Pairing

Tired Hands Brewing and their deceitful potion 'Extra Extra Knuckle' is the perfect post punk Crooked Spine blend. A Double IPA brewed at 8.6% is brewed with a bit of fluffy malted wheat and hopped. Notes of passion fruit, mango nectar, jellied strawberry, ripe honeydew, and mandarin orange.

Crooked Spine are:

Garrett Bolin - Bass

Evan Campbell - Drums

Joey DeGrado - Vocals
