At the very least, the new 7-inch single from Portland punk duo the Gutters offers value for money. Five complete songs grace the package, and while none of them last longer than a minute and change, each contains enough raunchy chords, brain-dead choruses, and ridiculously fake British accents to appeal to your basest punk-rock instincts. There's even a song that asks the question posed eternally by DIY rockers, "Should we make a 7-inch?," turning these slapdash, sloppy, two-chord butcheries into something hilariously meta. Like a mongrel that follows you home from school, you can't help can't falling in love with the Gutters' mangy, possibly diseased tunes, and there's no question they're gonna love you back. This record is a goddamn blast. NED LANNAMANN
