The Frights

You Are Going to Hate This (Dangerbird)

Sunday SOS Record Reviews

Production by Fidlar's Zac Carper explains the similarities in sound between both sets of SoCal grunge punks, the Frights churning out compelling, surprisingly emotional cuts. Most of debut long-player You Are Going to Hate This turns on fleeting youth and various stages of love, more forlorn than not, but the inner turmoil often gets buried by the surfy doo-wop and tsunami of petulant punk. "Afraid of the Dark" and "Puppy Knuckles," both clean, measured, and thoughtful, capture the band at its best, as does "Growing Up," which finds the San Diego trio indulging more cerebral self-loathing. (Sun., 4pm, Forest stage)
