Tony Molina is a busy dude…I bet his jobs have jobs. He’s played in what feels like ten bands, and he’s finally gotten the itch to put out a solo record. After fronting Ovens, singing for Caged Animal, playing in Sopors, and handling lead guitar for Violent Change, this San Fran hardcore vet takes a stab at brainy, melody-soaked indie rock on Dissed and Dismissed, his brief but nearly flawless debut.
The songs are steeped in two-part vocal and guitar harmonies that bring to mind early perfect Weezer . There’s no room for error or much critique, as the entire record clocks in under the 15 minute mark. Short or not, the songs are sensible, full of no-filler crunch, and sweet enough to play at your parents BBQ this Memorial Day weekend. Enjoy.
