Brian Pokora’s #2:
Tuff Love – Junk EP
(Released 2nd May on Lost Map Records)
It’s short and it’s sweet and with the possible exception of Meursault they’re the band I’ve seen most this year which happened without really trying. Possibly the best way to describe Tuff Love is they’re kind of like a slowed down Speedy Ortiz but to say their songs coasts along would be a dishonour to their catchy, occasionally messy noise.
