Chagrin Ground Scores
Chagrin is from San Diego and their debut album embodies everything that the city represents. Beautiful and sad, the songs cut through and set themselves apart from a traditional punk rock record. It's catchy and melodic, mellow and melancholy. Take four exceptional musicians and songwriters who have spent their whole lives playing in punk rock bands, let them make a record that they want to make on their terms and Ground Scores is what you get. This record is the beach on a cloudy day with a red flag and undertow. It's El Cajon Blvd. at night. It's the Padres winning the pennant in '84 and '98... and losing the World Series both years. Featuring members of legendary San Diego bands such as Tiltwheel, Dan Padilla, Sunnyside, Shallow Cuts and more.
