Don't let the name fool you. Seattle trio the Wimps have distilled everything you could want from catchy, pogo-worthy punk rock into a rapid-fire set of loud, hook-driven tunes. The songs that fill out the Wimps' debut album, Repeat, rarely surpass the two-minute mark, but somehow they still find a way to shape the band's world-weary but all too relatable state of mind. The four cuts from their follow-up EP, Party at the Wrong Time—released earlier this year on Seattle-based upstart Help Yourself Records—find the band continuing to whittle away at this sound. Not that they need to sharpen much. They've quickly homed in on a style that's guaranteed to get an audience shaking, making any show the Wimps play a sure bet for an amusingly rowdy night out.
