WLFC Weekly Review

Sheer Mag – Compilation

Sheer Mag released three four-sound 7’ records in 2016, each of which was packed with fiery classic rock inspired punk jams that throw back to bands like Thin Lizzy and Husker Du. The Philly-based band recently re-released the songs from those EPs on one large compilation album. The record is packed full of a marathon of energy that feels much like you are listening to the band in one long jam session. The songs are personal and relatable, like “Fan the Flames” which tells the story of standing up to a slumlord, or “Sit and Cry,” which is a reflection on new beginnings, homesickness, and the overwhelming feelings that come with moving to a big city. This album is a fun, relentless, and nostalgic piece of art that gives until there is nothing left to give.
