Health Palm Ain’t For Your Grandmom…Unless Your Grandmom Cool As Shit


Space power over-watch destroying evil rats!  Space power over-watch destroying evil rats!  SPACE POWER OVER-WATCH DESTROYING EVIL RATS!

I’m sorry, but I can’t promise that’s entirely out of my system. Health Palm, the newest release from New Brunswick’s Spowder, out on Sniffling Indie Kids, is an absolute must-listen for any fans of old school, hardcore, mosh-pitting, punk music, the likes of which have not been seen, heard, or experience at this level of authenticity for quite some time.

The album rips open that can of whoop ass right from the start with the thirty-second first track SPACE POWER OVER-WATCH DESTROYING EVIL RATS, which, in case you haven’t caught on yet, is the most infectious thirty-second headbanger I’ve ever heard.  This track is the thesis statement of the entire album.  You know from Track 1 exactly what’s in store for you.  This isn’t music for Grandma, unless Grandma can do a dirty pop shove-it.
