Safe Ride Home
For pop/punk fans
Group members and guest artists:
Billy Joe Johnson—drums
The Missouri trio gets their Columbia Records debut with almost too typical pop/punk. The music hits its stride when the vocal harmonies are consistent with the riffhooks like in "How Would You Know" and "World Crash." Vocals from Heidi Phillips are occasionally (and purposely) dry and low-key but works in songs like the loner anthem "Empty Room." (firstname.lastname@example.org)
