The So So Glos are punk-rock kids from Bay Ridge, Brooklyn – like if the Ramones really were brothers. Their second album is their gloriously high-speed manifesto, as the Glos declare war on everything boring ("I'm done ruling the world from the tip of my thumb/And tapping on my telephone for fun") and dive into the dirty big-city kicks of "Wrecking Ball" and "Son of an American." The songs on Blowout have a classicist confidence, reaching all the way back to the Clash and the Kinks. But it's the Glos' boyish exuberance that drives every second of the album home. And "Xanax" is sure to be the pool-party anthem of the summer, at least in some highly unsanitary pools.
