Bleed American

Genre: Rock; Status: In Season

Whereas blink-182 and crew trade in punk-pop built on masturbation jokes and muscular riffs, this Mesa, Ariz., foursome’s equally effervescent tunes are bittersweet, not bawdy. The emo-edged ”Your House” and ”Cautioners” will appeal to the sensitive guy who stops to pick his girlfriend daisies; fizzy, wallop-packing rockers such as the title track and ”The Middle” will please the dude who thinks that crushing a beer can on his brow impresses chicks. A fine balancing act.
