Postage - Return To Sender


  Postage ( are a "mid tempo loud abrasive melodic pop punk" band from Albany, New York, who's line up is Mike Moak (guitars/vocals), Tyler Paige (guitar), Chris Millington (drums) and Eric Pressman (bass). The members are genre veterans having served their time playing in bands such as Signal Lost, Male Patterns, Mystery Girl and After the Fall. 

  A little bit of Googling reveals that they released the 4 track Flexi ep in 2019 and then a split single the following year with Mikey Erg ( and whilst I have a very vague recollection of that split, it wasn't till recently and the release of a song titled 80-85 (still probably my favourite by them) that the band properly registered. Both it and follow up teaser track Smitten impressed me a lot and made me make a mental note to watch out for the album's release.


  The Self Titled album is now available to check out in it's entirety and a very enjoyable listen it is. Long term fans of the bands will recognise several of the tracks which were originally on those earlier releases and have been given a loving polish. If, like me, you're late to the party then you've 10 gems to unearth. It's available from Dirt Cult Records on vinyl (300 copies) and digital download :

  Coming in at a lean, mean 72 seconds, Paranoia kicks things off in style and things continue in a similar fashion throughout. All the tracks are catchy and worthy of  multiple plays. This is one of them, it's called Return To Sender...
