Cruiserweight

Secret Weaponry (Heinous/Doghouse Records)

Siblings always have the best harmony--in music, at least. Cruiserweight is made up of three siblings and a friend, and the band tackles the peppy, ultra-harmonic genre of pop/punk with better-than-average results. After moving from Terrell and Dallas to Austin, the band found a larger fan base and followed up its EP this will undoubtedly come out wrongwith Secret Weaponry. It's a strong album, from the rocking opener "Vermont" to "Goodbye Daily Sadness," the perfect motivational track before a night on the town, to "Permanent Things," rife with those tight-knit familial harmonies. Their confident, spunky and sometimes comedic stage presence translates well onto the album, so it's a little hard to understand why they had such a tough go of it in Dallas. No room in this town for girl singers or pop/punk that doesn't sound derivative and dumb? Cruiserweight has their influences--from the Descendents to Save Ferris to even Fleetwood Mac--but they are a band all their own.
