Album Review: Sellout – Sellout II

Monday 08th, January 2018 / 08:00
By Keeghan Rouleau

Sellout

Sellout II
Independent

Sellout II is a perfect example of what a second release should be, an extension building upon their first. Taking the best parts of their unique style, and bringing new ideas to flourish within.

With their first release, Calgary’s punk scene standouts, Sellout, showed us raw instrumental talent, incredibly powerful yet flexible vocals, and heartbroken lyrics performed through a rock/metal formula. With Sellout II, the band has ventured out from their original formulas and performed a more jack-of-all-trades style EP.

While keeping their original fast-paced, snare murdering drum habits, and their lively and early punk rock inspired guitar, they’ve snuck in tracks sounding inspired by more eras of punk, and a wider range of genres.

Opening the album up is “Showstopper,” a familiar introduction, featuring a similar vocal style and tempo to the first track on their debut. “Rebirth” comes next; a calm song in the very beginning, with steady vocals and a cutesy guitar riff, interrupted by rougher distortion and bursts of energy, gradually building up into harsh emotion and faster paces.

The band’s still playing around, but their undeniable energy is there, and it’s very interesting to hear where they’re exploring. This is still the beginning for Calgary’s own imperfect punk posse, and it’s very exciting to watch them grow.
