the 3rd lp from the la pop-punker is a collection of songs that follows the newly 30-year-old Green as she carefully navigates a minefield of emotion.

With a nod to her heroes, sentimental SoCal punks The Descendents, Green too wonders what it will be like when she gets old. Throughout songs such as "Some People," "Deeper Than Love," & the illustrative title track, we have no choice but to feel the sympathetic growing pains of revelatory maturation & the anxieties that come along with it. Sonically, this album is a major change for the LA-based songwriter, who has come to be known for her homemade recordings. This time, she's got a little help from her friends: the full band heard here includes JEFF the Brotherhood's Jake Orrall & Diarrhea Planet's Casey Weissbuch. for fans of la sera, sleater-kinney or bikini kill. "a one-woman Bikini Kill/Garbage cross-breed" 7.5/10 - the line of best fit.
