I kind of fell off the Hot Mulligan bandwagon when I accidentally rear-ended someone while jamming to “Something About A Bunch Of Dead Dogs” a couple of years ago. However, this new track, whimsically titled “Featuring Mark Hoppus,” has me back on board. Kicking off with Nathan Sanville’s raspy yells is always a good start, especially when he’s confessing: “I kind of miss you.”
“Featuring Mark Hoppus” is the latest single off Hot Mulligan’s forthcoming EP I Won’t Reach Out To You, following “Pop Shuvit (Hall of Meat, Duh).” It’s actually a great, emotional song — though not as vulnerable as the fan-favorited “Shaylee, Shanel” — and it makes me regret ignoring their last record you’ll be okay. The song titles may be corny, but the riffs make it worth it.
