Album review: 'Just One More' 

Just One More

"Just One More"


Just One More's new, self-titled EP explores existential questions, but it stays fun and keeps a not-too-serious vibe, all in a classic punk format. Just One More is the brainchild of singer and guitarist Brandin Ross, created when he was on hiatus from the punk band Preemptive Strike in 2016. After some initial lineup changes, Ross found himself frequenting Watchmen Studios with Ricky Rotten on bass and Mikey Fitz on drums. With the help of producer Doug White, they created this six-track debut and released it in March.

With White's excellent production quality, Fitz's drums are clear and crisp, all frequencies of Ross' agile vocal range are supported, and Rotten's bass lines cut through the mix like a fine blade. There's a lot of interplay between Ross's and Rotten's vocals, like the call and response found in the track "Ms. Enthrope," and their hilarious "Father's Day." Sometimes the lyrics feel too squeezed into their given melodies, but the underlying message still comes through.  Just One More creates punk anthems that audiences can sing along to, hopefully swaying back and forth together and finishing out in an upbeat frenzy.
