Starving Hearts EP (Self-Released)
It's not very often that punk rock's aging, bony body gets a shot of hot, new blood. And while South Florida's proud old punks are by no means stale or slipping, it's always good to get some fresh corpuscules rushing through the veins.
One such dose of the red stuff: Bulletproof Tiger, a local power trio that's given their Miami heroes and peers a rush of revitalizing energy with these ornate, layered, and experimental tunes. The Starving Hearts EP is just bubbling with youthful angst, introspection and beauty -- not to mention healthy red cells.
