​Washington DC band Flavor Waster blends the enthusiasm of punk and hardcore with booming electronic elements for a unique mix of styles on its debut album, It’s Always Sunny When You’re Cool. Those influences, plus the vocals of singer Jodi Jones, make for a powerful, energetic and sometimes complex listen. Dramatic closer "Private Language" is standing out to us right now, while the frantic title track and slinky "Metal Fossils" have their own charms, as well. The album is due out November 20 on School of Resentment Recordings.

It’s Always Sunny When You’re Cool can be ordered via Bandcamp.
