Boston-based pretty boys Transit are ridiculous. They embody the sort of histrionic self-indulgence that drove the emo/pop-punk synthesis of the early '00s completely over the top by the end of the decade. But—and maybe this is just because I really am a sucker for teenage poetry and comprehensively embarrassing melodrama—this music actually does make me feel things. Take "Outbound," the saccharine, irresistible-as-fudge acoustic closer to the group's 2009 EP Stay Home, for instance. It's corny and hackneyed, for sure, but there's also something undeniably real about it. Pop? Definitely. Punk? Your grandparents might find it mildly subversive. MORGAN TROPER
