No, Sunwolf's 'Push It' is not a rock 'n' roll cover of Salt-n-Pepa's 1988 single of the same name. It is, however, still a worthwhile listen that'll help you "push" the limits of your dreary Monday afternoon.

The D.C. trio, started by local Rob "Kalani" Tifford, sounds like the Buzzcocks playing all of T. Rex's A-sides. The sound is pulpy punk, pureed alongside sugarcane rhythms, and 'Push It' surges with a series of group vocals, beginning with Kalani's repetitive affirmation of "You Got It!" sung through an endearing lisp.

"'Push It' is the culmination of late night jams and reckless abandon condensed onto a recording. It makes us feel like chugging on some whiskey and chomping on some pop-tarts," Tifford tells

Sunwolf have since hooked up with producer Jerry Busher for a six-song EP called 'Angel Eyes.' The collection drops Oct. 8, but in the meantime, grab 'Push It' below.
