In 2010, Philadelphia’s rock’n’roll/punk outfit, Restorations, debuted with their four-song EP Strange Behaviors. After nearly three years of touring and recording comes their latest record LP2 (2013) from SideOneDummy Records. The album opens with their single, “D,” a track that showcases the band’s speed, catchy guitar riffs, and driving bassline. Vocalist Jon Loudon’s voice is powerful, raw, and—when paired with the melodic guitar and tight drumming—gives this band the classic feel of a rock band, merged with a refreshing take on punk.
