PO: The Stops - Nameless Faces LP

Recommended Posts

This record is up for order now. Shipping early to mid-September


The Stops - Nameless Faces LP

Self-described as “5 girls playing punk, The Stops quickly became one of Dirt Cult’s favorite local Portland bands (if not one of our favorite current bands period) when we moved out here last year. Their debut LP, Nameless Faces, definitely adds to Portland’s reputation for dark melodic punk (see also: Observers, Red Dons). The Stops are talented individuals who’ve cultivated a unique sound – combining seemingly disparate influences of the Wipers, Adolescents, and early Go-Go’s. They kind of come off like an American counterpart to Terrible Feelings – except they’re more straight-forward punk rock and no quite as bleak. Still, if you enjoy that blend of melodic hooks and darker lyrics, The Stops are a band you won’t want to miss. Lead guitarists, Ruby is an absolute force. Out of the many guitarists of the moment playing in that classic Rikk Agnew style, she’s one of the best we’re heard. This record is loaded with top-notch guitar hooks, and they fit in perfectly with the band’s style.
