Jeff Rosenstock is quite the achieved musician if I do say so myself. A member of cult classic ska-punk group The Arrogant Sons of Bitches, DIY collective Bomb The Music Industry, and various other bands such as Kudrow, Antarctigo Vespucci, and The Bruce Lee Band; Jeff has displayed a large variety of song writing and musicianship without ever failing to impress. We Cool?, the debut studio album from Jeff Rosenstock following the break-up of Bomb The Music Industry.
We Cool? shows Jeff at an absolute apex with songwriting and musicianship. Jeff's combination of downright depressing themes such as growing up a failure, dying alone, and having everyone out to get you with quick and up-beat instrumentals create a little morbid atmosphere for all the songs on the album. The writing itself blends a nice level of venerability with sarcasm that makes each song catchy and fun to listen to. This album is just an overall joy to listen to, and with all the different styles of folk, punk, country, and weezercore throughout the album there is a little something for everyone.
