Label: Run For Cover On October 23, 2012, one of the most highly regarded prospects of the UK pop-punk scene and the recent recipients of Tumblr’s undying love, Basement, released their second record, Colourmeinkindness. Now, just over 8 years later, Colourmeinkindess still holds up. The grand grunge-inspired gestures, Midwest Emo ingenuity, and sonic accuracy made this the best record of Basement’s discography and an album worth remembering. Over time and a bunch of releases since, Basement have earned the respect of fans young and old, and Colourmeinkindness has become one of the quintessential records for autumnal listening and one of the best starter records to that era of pop-punk. The album was one of the first records during the infancy of the streaming age that gained traction, with “Covet” holding their stop spot. On the LP Basement managed to encapsulate the nostalgia of the 90’s radio with the urgency of modern playing techniques, in a way that they fully haven’t been able to recapture since, but with Colourmeinkindness there is no doubt that they made their mark.
