“Live It Up”

    Rabbit mask enthusiast Justin Champlin, a.k.a. Nobunny, has a new album coming out called First Blood tomorrow via Goner. To celebrate, he’s unleashed “Live It Up,” an uptempo rocker that finds his lo-fi Ramones-indebted sound cleaned up a bit, but his hooks no less sharp. It’s hardly revelatory stuff, but it’s still a welcome dispatch from one of garage-punk’s more entertaining recent figures. Give it a listen over at Stereogum.
