Baltimore's Proper Nouns throw some of their indie, upbeat, poppy, punk vibes onto the little screen with this Virtual album release. On Proper Nouns’ debut LP, Feel Free (Phonebooth Records), Spencer Compton runs each song like a sharp, witty, Poli Sci salon, coating complex ideas in punk energy and power pop candy floss. Coming on like Script Politti’s Green Gartside on a frenetic Minutemen beat, Compton aims his heady songs at the gut, letting the personal and the political swing in unison.
