Remember Sports were a self-categorized “basement rock band” back in the day but with this their third album Like a Stone, it’s hard to imagine songs this huge relegated solely to the basement.
Taking their electrifying pop punk has seen them share stages with the likes of Jeff Rosenstock and Joyce Manor, the Philadelphians have built on the promise of their earlier work with an elevated sense of space and sound, that maintains the warmth and immediacy that made the quartet so beloved previously but delivers on some of their smartest performances and arrangements to date.
With compelling reference points, from the interlocking guitar sophistication of Built to Spill, the eclectic pop snark of Rilo Kiley, the blown-out might of Sleater-Kinney’s The Woods, and the catchy intimacy of Yo La Tengo, in Like a Stone, Remember Sports have created a magnificent musical melting pot, that's well worth diving right in to!
