Ostensibly a collection of offcuts from 2018 album ‘Fixed Ideals’, Muncie Girls’ surprise release ‘B-Sides The Point’ is far from bargain bin fodder. Opener ‘Blankets’ might have been a college rock anthem if it were released in the ‘90s, singer Lande Hekt lilting through a chorus of clattering guitars and bustling drums. She belts out a real call to arms later, on mini-album closer ‘Take Steps’. “Working out a plan, always trying to understand, never wanted anything other than to play in bands,” she sings. It’s a near-perfect blast of ‘90s pop-punk, packed to the brim with riffs and teenage angst. Should American teen movies fall back into fashion any time soon, there’s a soundtrack here ready for it.
