Few bands are able to strike so much feeling within such few songs. Philadelphia’s now defunct band, Bustduster, does so with ease. Their 3-track EP, Pinkeye, starts and ends with no mercy of clearly explaining the stress of being an early 20-something dealing with the reality of transitioning to adulthood. Self-described as Pizza-core, the melodic almost surf rock harmonies compliment over modern East Coast pop punk power chords. This is a necessity to anyone’s library that has ever gotten over heartbreak and realized that the working force awaits and simply doesn’t care about you.
