Album Review
Reviewed 2013-09-09 
Jangle-pop with lots of garage and art/post-punk influences out of Boston. Most songs were initially released as singles or b-sides and there's considerable variety from track to track, so it's well-suited to radio. They're going on tour with John Vanderslice, fans might overlap; some vocal stylings, subject matters, and lack of being too serious remind me of the midwestern DIY folk-punk scene.

1 (FCC SHIT) (2:04) Pop-punky, a little jangly and snotty
2 (2:21) Pleasant, unremarkable indie rock; mellow, swinging, atypical nasal-baritone m singing voice
*3 (3:05) Upbeat, jangly, slick and poppy, backing "ooh la la" vox- your indie pop hit
4 (FCC SHIT) (2:21) Angry, snotty, sarcastic, loud; garage-punky
*5 (1:54) Twee, noise pop, just a bit surfy; fuzzy fem vox, tight rhythm; K records feel
6 (2:26) Chill, bent summery guitar sounds, skips right along
*7 (3:42) Happy sound, bittersweet/nostalgic lyrics, super jangly, great bassline, feedback features in second half
8 (1:41) Straightforward, upbeat, low-frills, fem backing vox
9 (2:21) Alternating M/F vox, not distinct
10 (2:16) Band members trade voc duties, melodic, poppy
11 (FCC SHIT) (3:04) Nasal vox, pounding beat, loud guitars
