Album Review
Reviewed 2009-06-22 
Sometimes droney and distorted, sometimes softer indie rock in this debut album from the Baltimore group. Both male and female vocals, as well as electric piano, guitars and drums are frequently present. Songs tend to start soft--some stay soft and some get louder.
My picks: 1, 2, 3, 10, 11 FCC: Clean

med-tempo. female front, looping guitar plus electric piano. steady drums. gets louder/ distorted about halfway through--then quiet again.
droney and distorted. nice pop song hidden in there.
mid tempo. fingerpicked acoustic guitar. m+f vocals.
slow. droney + electric piano. sort of slowcore-ish.
med-slow to begin, mid later. electric piano, strings, f vocals later.
mid tempo rocker.
starts soft, f+ vocals, guitars, then gets gradually louder.
mid tempo. piano + f vox. some cello later. decent tune.
med-slow swinging pop tune. m+f vox.
med-slow. guitar + f vox. nice melody. builds up later.
mid tempo. uptempo guitars and vocals. upbeat drums.
