Despite the presence of the propulsive, hard-hitting rhythms and habitual harmonies we've come to associate with popular punk, Minor Setback's full-length debut is actually straight-up power-pop. The disc collects a dozen songs from the Cleveland quintet's three-year run on the club circuit, and there's not a dull track in the batch. It's probably the only band in the city to cite the Foo Fighters and Ben Folds as influences, then make good on the boast.
