LP3, the aptly named third album by Restorations, is a Replacements-damaged heartland punk move from a band whose previous music cast them as #emorevival. That lands it in that roots-rock-meets-post-punk sweet spot that feels like Constantines and the Gaslight Anthem carved out more than a decade ago, yet LP3 is far too vital and singular to feel like a retread. The “Separate Songs” video finds them rocking in a huge empty mansion alongside a pro baseball player who appears to be dying a slow death of suffocation by luxury. Mitchell Wojcik and John Komar direct. Check it out below.
LP3 is out 10/28 on SideOneDummy.
