Just Friends' newest LP Rock 2 the Rhythm is easy to listen to, but harder to classify. Combining the brevity of a typical Joyce Manor record with the unabashed personality of Reel Big Fish, the Pleasanton, California septet falls somewhere between pop punk and ska without pledging full allegiance to either genre. The album is filled with big, brassy horn interludes and guitar melodies with pop punk sensibilities. Sam Kless' raspy, passionate vocals sound uncomfortable at first, but they make sense in the context of the rest of the album. Just Friends make music that is probably best enjoyed shouted in a cramped basement filled with kids unearthing dance moves typically reserved for a Streetlight Manifesto show. The music will conjure nostalgia for those who grew up playing Tony Hawks' line of Pro Skater video games.
