The Tough Shits - "Cats & Dogs"

Here's the newest joint from Burger Records: a full-length from Philadelphia's The Tough Shits. The spirit here may be wild, abrasive, and ramshackle, but the band's jangly pop-punk numbers are expertly polished, filled with addictive and impossible-to-shake candy-eared hooks and melodies. The Tough Shits have put out 7-inches on Desert Island Discs in Seattle and another on Ramo Records in Minneapolis—the latter of which features the hilariously great toe-tapper "Pretty Wild"—but this marks the band's first attempt at a long player, and judging from sneak peak single "Cats & Dogs," it should be a hell of a good time.

Pre-order the LP from Burger on gold vinyl.
