Album Review: The Penske File – Salvation

The Penske File
Salvation
Stomp Records

The Penske File’s new album, Salvation, is a power-poppy blend of various punk rock styles. The opening track “Kamikaze Kids,” explodes from the picking pattern of a brightly-toned guitar to a folk-infused, chorus-y punk song reminiscent of new-era Green Day meeting old-school Against Me!

Salvation’s fourth track “Spin My History,” is an emotionally driven rock-song with enough catchiness to fit on radio airwaves, and enough grit to catch your attention. “Last Chance” is a smack-your-face tune that mixes elements of ‘50s rock n’ roll with heavy, melodic skate-punk.

Overall, Salvation feels like a well-executed power-pop tribute to punk music of the early 2000s. Sounds on Salvation are comparable to the likes of Blink-182, Sum41, NOFX, Yellowcard, and many more artists of that era. The record’s diversity touches on punk’s many niches, leaving something catchy and enjoyable for fans from all walks of the genre.
