Three minutes is not a long time. But for post-punk/post-hardcore/post-yesterday hellions GRASS IS GREEN, a spry 180 seconds is all that’s needed to kiss up, break up, and make up within the beautifully messy confines of song. “Nice Guy of the Year Award,” the first track off Ronson — Grass Is Green’s upcoming third album in as many years — is a complex ruckus of a number with a sweet, sensitive undercoating, true to the quartet’s often-schizophrenic serving of animated, jittery rock and roll. The track would be something close to brutish if it wasn’t so endearing. The unclassifiable Ronson gets unveiled tonight at Great Scott in Allston alongside Arvid Noe, Speedy Ortiz, and Sneeze, so prepare accordingly by snagging the bell-rung “Nice Guy of the Year Award” MP3, on us, down below. You’ll be up, then down, then up again, in no time.
