Air Traffic Control
In a fair world, Lunenburg-based Air Traffic Control would have a contract, tour everywhere and be all over the radio. Yet the Comstock brothers (frontman Kirk and drummer Jordi) continue to make great and ignored records. Here they have help from cousin Luke on bass and multi-instrumentalist Philip Clark. Deliciously darker than their Madhat material and full of power-pop hits like “Feel Proud” and “Small Town Wars,” you won’t hear many better east coast rock records this year.
