The Mean Jeans - Tight New Dimension

The Mean Jeans are, as they call themselves, a "Cool Punk / Dumb Punk" trio from Portland, Oregon featuring Billy Jeans: GTR/VOX; Jeans Wilder: DRUMS/VOX; Junior Jeans : BASS.

After two full-lengths released on Dirtnap Records(Are You Serious? in 2009 and On Mars in 2012), a slew of 7”s and a compilation aptly titled "Singles" in 2015, the band signed to Fat Wreck Chords earlier this year. 

On their latest delivery, "Tight New Dimension" the band has written a batch of tunes that are pretty much impossible to resist. It’s quite hard to pull out a couple of songs to be favorites since the entire album is great. From "Nite Vision" to "I Don’t Care That I Don’t Care", these songs will have you singing along all day long. 

The music is tighter than ever, RIVERDALES/SCREECHING WEASEL-influenced pop-punk with a bit of a garage-rock attitude and it proves if proof was needed that these party animals evolved from the raw sound of their early days to the polished power-pop-punk machine of today.
