Local newcomers A Victim of Good Times released their debut album The Full Catastrophe last week and it’s a flashback to mid-’90s indie rock and a flash forward to something fresh. Citing the Pixies, Weezer, Nirvana, and Pavement among their influences it’s clear that the ’90s are the era of choice from which they draw significant inspiration. The record release show isn’t until May 9th at Newark’s Mojo Main, but you can catch them live at Wilmington’s Oddity Bar on April 18th and at Jupiter Records for Record Store Day on April 19th. Listen to “Evening Fires” below and get the album for free here.
