Shape Shift with Me
How does a punk follow up a landmark album such as Transgender Dysphoria Blues? For Shape Shift with Me, Against Me! frontwoman Laura Jane Grace proves that writing a bunch of brokenhearted pop songs is always a good option. There are plenty of punk ragers here, such as “Dead Rats,” but jangly odes to heartache "Crash" and "Boyfriend" bounce and chime in ways that no other Against Me! songs ever have, while "Rebecca" is a fizzy New Wave ode to the anxiety spawned by new love.
