REVIEW: Dowzer – Facing Paper Tigers

Dowzer – Facing Paper Tigers
CDEP 2012 Waterslide Records

The Dutch punkrockers from Dowzer are back with a renewed line-up and a new CDEP called ‘Facing Paper Tigers’ on the Japenese Waterslide Records. The EP is released in Japanese style: with an Obi and translated lyrics in Japanese.

For the ones who don’t know Dowzer, they play catchy poppunk inspired by current punkrockbands and the punkrock bands from the nineties (No Use For A Name, NOFX, …). Since the release of ‘Concrete Smiles At Aisle Five’ in 2008 you can hear that the band has grown. With their renewed/expanded line-up they sound richer then before. Still no major League punkrock but a more then decent effort with songs that stick in your head after a few spins. 

Check it out … pick it up … enjoy.

Track list:

  1. Masochist
  2. I will never conform
  3. Hope is for suckers
  4. Denied in return
  5. Friendshipwreck
