'constant headache' feels like joyce manor's first attempt to showcase their talent. with five songs under ten minutes the e.p. grabs your attention right from the start, squeezes hard, and doesn't let go. 'five beer plan' gives the listener a little breathing room in the middle of the e.p. with a slow bass line before picking back up and ending strong with 'leather jacket,' which happens to be my favorite song on the album. this is really solid pop-punk. it's got all the hooks in all the right places, and enough catchy phrases to bare repeating. i dare you to listen to this only one time: it's impossible.
the band has plans to release this on a 7", but for now you can download it here. make sure to donate . . . the more money we toss their way the sooner they'll have money to record a full length.
