Ever came across people who said that listening to punkrock is gay? Well yes, I guess it is if you are listening to High Dive. These guys are a queer-positive folky lo-fi punk outfit who don’t sound all that different from Defiance, Ohio (who they apparently share members with).

All of the songs on here have a bare bones kind of approach and the vocal delivery on here is quirky, not unlike Atom & His Package. There isn’t a bad song in sight here but “Tennessee” is an absolute standout. That one and their sweet cover of “I Think We’re Alone Now” already make this self-titled album worth the purchase.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
