ALBUMPortraits (Naim Edge Records)
SOUND Four-piece punk act Max Raptor hail from Midlands, U.K., and deliver plenty of frantic riffage, alt-rock hooks and fist-pumping choruses on their second mini-LP, Portraits. The song’s unchecked attitude and energy—led by singer Wil Ray’s sneering vocals and guitarist J.B. Willcox’s propulsive rhythmic work—results in the kind of racket that could incite a dance party…or a fistfight.
