O Pioneers!!!- O Pioneers!!! 7"
On this fairly recent (released in 2008) 7 inch Houston's O Pioneers!!! blend elements of both early Hot Water Music and early Against Me! without losing their originality, something that is hard to come by these days. I'll be honest, after several listens to the 3 songs on this 7 inch, I still have no clue what the fuck the singer is saying. For me it just makes the songs more raw and emotional and unique. I'd take a guy yelling out of tune over someone singing through an auto-tune every time. Also if you haven't picked up OP!!!'s latest album Neon Creeps, you need to because it is one of the best to come out this year (it's up on Quote Unquote Records' website for free download).
