Local punk-pop four-piece Livingston Seagull released their Puget EP late last year, and it's a pleasingly scruffy, surprisingly melodic set of Dinosaur Jr.-styled guitar chug and half-time sing-along choruses (bonus: their vocalist sounds nothing like J. Mascis). Standout cut "Frog Rocker" leads off the collection, managing to pack more instrumental twists and turns into four minutes than many less imaginative bands could in a whole album, including a killer breakdown featuring the lyric "The last time I had a time-out was in second grade." #Rebel4life. Now go shoot a damn skate video to this thing, ya punx!

Livingston Seagull play the Kraken Bar & Lounge tonight.
