Nervous and the Kid -- s/t
Country-ish indie/folk rock. Catchy, a bit sloppy, sweet, pensive, are all adjectives I'd use to describe this first album from these California kids that recently moved to Portland. Some songs are more indie pop, some more folk/country. I especially liked the sloppier country/folk tracks (3, 5, 7), that have a jug-band 3/4 oom-pa-pa feel. A couple of the tracks are a bit psychedelic/indie rock (6,8). Overall, quite enjoyable! Somewhat reminiscent of the Mountain Goats or Neutral Milk Hotel.
PICS:1, 3, 5, 6, 7, 10
1. folky indie rock melody-- male and female vocs
2. sparse pop, not as catchy as others
3. catchy, sweet - country/folk -- 3/4 jug-band melody
4. indie rock -- female vocs, nice hand-claps!
5. banjo, slow, sweet, great song
6. interesting discordant melody -- a bit psych/folk
7. jug-band feel -- good -- contains old kids song "here we go loopy-loop" at end
8. slight psych feel -- spare melody, female vocs
9. short interlude with backwards music
10. folk melody, male/female duet
