SWMRS (aka swimmers, fka Emily’s Army) seem to have outgrown a strictly punk label. There’s still that ass-kicking rebellious musical appeal and political, antiestablishment lyrics, but songs on just released full-length Berkeley’s on Fire have distinctive new wave jangle and bounciness, British post-punk snottiness, pop-punk melodic sense, and alt rock crunchiness. The upbeat and discordant title track reflects on the current climate on college campuses and the media’s over (or under) dramatization of events. Other standouts include the fun, monkey-hooting and synth-kicking “Lose Lose Lose” and fuzzy cheeky album closer “Steve Got Robbed,” about a dude who gets robbed twice in one night: “But they won't ever learn to steal what's most important / So put your hands up and make a fuck sign / And point it at the plutocrats who wanna control your life.”
