Album Review
Reviewed 2006-08-10
Brief, lo-fi indie folk ditties. The Mountain Goats meet Half-handed Cloud. Acoustic guitar driven songs exhibit a great deal of variety within the tape-recorder aesthetic, using odd, off-kilter electric guitar and quirky random instrumentation to fill in the sound. Mid energy, swaggering yet frail strains with a brevity that takes a bit of getting used to (most songs are a minute or less.) Great stuff - very fun. FCC clean

Recommended: 4, 7, 8, 11, 12, 15, 18 (rather soft)

Note - 30-second outro sounds after 20.
