Risk/Reward’s self-titled debut album is a slab of casually aware rock music. Walsh and Houlihan’s songs bounce off one another with a friendly respect, with Darragh’s bigger-than-Bonham kit sitting square in the middle. The tunes are chiseled and finessed without ever being overwrought, and the effortless attitude they manage adds a punk rock bite to the searing melody exploding from your speakers. Three friends up on stage or in the studio having the time of their lives, genuinely excited that they have the opportunity to write and perform these perfect songs. Not bad for a bunch of shit-talking micks. — Steve V
