New York Rifles, Make A Wish
While not "punk" in the genre-labeling sense, New York Rifles are rock 'n' roll, with a punk heart beating ferociously, and play rock 'n' roll like it was played on that very CBGB's stage. This is wild, unabashed, melodic but still biting rock, with youthful energy that commands your ears to listen because you know you're hearing something straight from the soul, impassioned and meaningful from those that wrote it and are playing it for you. And, so, you walk away from that with something. A feeling that music isn't homogenized or laboratory perfected. Make A Wish by the New York Rifles embodies those old records, the spirit, the drive, the power and stamina. Think loud guitars, melodic shards crashing against punk-infused, sweaty rock 'n' roll. Sincere, honest vocals conveying equally sincere lyrics about every day life, whether it is love, heartbreak, lust, or just waking up in the morning and finding your direction that day.
