We’re calling it right now: The Past Is Still Alive by Hurray For the Riff Raff is one of the best albums of this year. Alynda Segarra, the constant behind Hurray For the Riff Raff’s swirling lineup, has poured their essence into this album. On The Past, Segarra reckons with the ghosts of their youth as a crust punk train hopping from New York, New Orleans, San Francisco, and all points between. That’s a bit how this album works as well: Segarra regards the past and the future with a thousand-yard stare.
