Album Review
Mandy Khoshnevisan
Reviewed 2005-09-01 
Nice indie pop with a nostalgic flavor, as indicated by the band’s name. Tasty mix-ins in their indie sound: some poignant accordion like in a French film, some sound art—and a sweet female vocalist, breathy but optimistic. Some really fun, dancy poppy stuff, and then some more introverted tracks. All are nice.

1. (4:31) starts out with nostalgia accordion, then enter guitar ensemble.
*2. *(2:50) Latin-y ratchet percussion against a dreamy pop background. (about finding the right person for you.)
3. (3:37) starting a motorcycle; then driving guitars move that motorcycle along. Catchy refrain.
4. (3:02) midtempo—walking in the happy rain
5. (3:28) head-bopping groove
*6. *(6:18) starts with soft night sounds, staticky broadcast; then slow bright spacy (about launching Laika the dog into space)
7. (3:40) accordion; mellow syncopated rhythm, easygoing.
8. (3:21) coy but urgent midtempo
9. (2:52) driving and upbeat; synthy triumphant organ
*10. *(2:15) bop your head and kick your heels back
11. (4:40) starts quiet, with spacy sounds. quiet but urgent; grows to an impatient loud refrain.
12. (3:36) folky acoustic guitars, slower and breathy, reverent; faint accordion
13. (4:02) accordion (sounds like Moon River); wistful echoey last-song-at-the-prom 6/8.
