Every Friday night, RVA Mag brings you a playlist curated by Virginia’s most influential artists, musicians, and institutions.
This week’s comes to us from Talk Me Off, whose debut album, Cursed, dropped recently on Say-10 Records to remind us all how truly great melodic punk rock can be when played with plenty of heart as well as plenty of bile. You should definitely grab a copy and rock out to their ringing basslines, snotty yet catchy choruses, and pedal-to-the-metal drumming.
But right now, before you do that, you should also check out the killer playlist they’ve made for us to kickstart your early March weekend the right way. It’s chock-full of a wide assortment of bangers from all genres, ranging from reggae and doo-wop to ferocious hardcore and the sort of catchy uptempo punk that they deal in so well themselves.
Pogo to death, Virginia.
