Dave’s Album Reviews: Souvenir

Banner Pilot Souvenir

Title:  Souvenir

Artist:  Banner Pilot

Banner Pilot’s fourth album Souvenir plays true to form in that it is a collection of incredibly catchy, hooked laden Midwestern punk tunes.  The band’s familiar sound pulls heavily from the likes of Dillinger Four, Jawbreaker, Pegboy, and Hot Water Music, but their passion and intensity is what really makes their music stand out (not that one could ever really go wrong following in the footsteps of those punk rock giants, IMHO).  While the 12 songs on Souvenir are undeniably Banner Pilot (especially with those thundering bass lines), this isn’t simply the same record all over again.  Simply put, Souvenir is a stellar record that proves that not all great punk rock (or music for that matter) is from the past.
