Album Review
Craig Matsumoto
Reviewed 2004-02-08
Guitar rock with punk energy and bar-band melodicism, with tough female vocals. Hard-driving stuff that probably sounds best with beers and cigarette smoke. Lyrics include the normal break-up themes but get weirdly introspective sometimes (especially the last track); you get the feeling songwriter Leah Archibald has been around a while and possibly has a couple kids. Also note the obsession with Buffalo, N.Y. (1,6,10).

1- Fast and catchy, minor key. "Stuck in my hometown like Pete Best"
3- Midtempo, high energy
4- Mid/fast, a bit poppy
5- Mid/fast, with country twang
6- Fast, kind of sweet (about a road trip with the kids)
8- Fast and punkish, w/slightly more girly-sounding vocal
11- Rolling midtempo
12- Fast and angry, but kinda dopey (about an argument with an apartment neighbor)
13- Fast, with sincerely nostalgic lyrics about attending the Fireman's Fair
