Who?

Danger is my Middle Name might sound adventurous, but they aren’t exactly taking a musical freebase jump with each catchy, pop-punk tune. Parasailing, maybe, but at least there’s a harness.


How Is It?

Not nearly as bad as you think. Revenge On The Radio is a 3-song trip down a familiar-but-scenic route. “Sidecar One” recalls a certain road made famous by some dudes called Yellowcard. The title track is a strong number with poppy guitars and a sugary chorus. “Goodbye Skyline,” however, tries the emo-ballad formula and fails with whiny vocals and oddly heavy guitars. DIMMN isn’t exactly Mae, as their true strength is (obviously) in fast pop songs with alternating and slick guitar riffs. Revenge On The Radio could be better, but DIMMN is yet another promising Chicago act.


Recommended If You Like: Yellowcard, Mae, IHOP, Motion City Soundtrack, Cracker Barrel, Waffle House, Barbecs, Bubbas

I can't stand Cracker Barrel. This EP is decent, though.
