Formed in 2005, My Life in Black and White came back from a brief hiatus last year, and it's been a fruitful rebirth: The Portland band just released its fourth album, Columbia, which I'm guessing they named after the river, and not the university or the record label. Alongside the accelerated tempos and shouted harmonies, the group throws in a few acoustic guitars and hoedown beats, but this is a 21st-century punk record through and through, and a very capable one. From opening track "The Last of the Young Guns," through the full-throttle "(Hold Fast) San Francisco," to the album's not exactly cheery closing stretch of "Dead at 21," "Wasted," and "Smile and Say Goodbye," Columbia is melodic and loud and full of good instincts, a flannel punk-rock album that doesn't compromise.
