Maryland emo-punks Two Inch Astronaut are already following up last year’s Personal Life with a new album called Can You Please Not Help, once again recorded by J. Robbins of Jawbox and Burning Airlines. Lead single “Snitch Jacket” showcased the trio’s penchant for both knotty riffage and catchy hooks, but new song “Play To No One” leans more on the latter. It’s a surprisingly power-poppy number complete with backing vocal ahhhhs, and like everything this band does, it’s very good. Listen below.
Can You Please Not Help is out 6/2 via Exploding In Sound. Pre-order it here.
