The first LP by Queens, NY's Risk/Reward is pressed on 180-gram black vinyl and comes with a compact disc as well as a free digital download.
Queens, NY's Risk/Reward have been together since 2006, but their collective rock history goes back actual decades. Their first full-length, recorded at Electrical Audio in Chicago, IL, blazes through 11 songs with exactly zero chaff. ".45" recalls The Grifters at their most concise, while "Want" pulses like a sober Replacements deep cut. A wonderful, tight set of no-joke rock music.
