Articles was supposed to only play one show. But seeing as ‘Makes Plants Grow’ is already the band’s second EP in less than one year, I guess it’s safe to say that plan is out the window.

This Gainesville-based three-piece grew up listening to No Idea Records style music and then figured they could probably make that kind of ruckus themselves. Turns out they were right. And what’s more, they make the best kind of ruckus. ‘Makes Plants Grow’ comes with just five songs and I keep wishing there were more. Especially seeing as the songs hardly cross the 2-minute mark.

Coming at you with plenty of energy, grit and hooks, Articles proceed by taking their lyrics about personal decay, distrust and searching for meaning and sending them through what I can only assume is some kind of device that makes everything sound just as badass as a Lawrence Arms song.
