Review: Hospital Food

Hospital Food
(New School Records)

Hospital Food is from Salt Lake City which means they may or may not be Mormon.  Maybe they’re like that “SLC Punk!” movie, I dunno.  Anyway, they play straight-up pop-punk in the vein of say, Blink 182 or maybe even older Pivit, with simple progressions and mid-tempo rambunctious-ness.  Almost every song off of “Medicate” sounds exactly the same with Vandals’ style drumming and clichéd-punk-rock (read: trying really hard to sound like Fat Mike) vocals.
