When Carmen Perry announced she was reviving her college pop punk band Sports — under a new lineup and a new name, Remember Sports — she had a tall order ahead of her. On the strength of two albums — stone-cold classic “Sunchokes,” and worthy followup “All of Something” — Sports earned a passionate cult following that outlived the band itself. “Slow Buzz,” the 2018 album marking the start of Remember Sports, had its work cut out, but ... read more

There is a couple really good tracks here, but for the most part it's pretty generic and samey.
