Album Review
Reviewed 2009-08-13
Guitar pop. An EP of likeable and simple, short tunes. A hint of country/folky twang. Creative lyrics. It's decently recorded, with other instruments (drums, notably); this is a step above a plain "guy in his bedroom" recording.

1- Mid/fast strumming, catchy, kid-like.
2- Midtempo, folky. Cute lyrics about bad people in general
3- A touch of Dylan, in that there's a lot of character names. Mid/fast and cute, but a little melancholy.
4- 16-bar blues, calmly strummed mid/fast. Goofy lyrics. "If you can't deliver me from evil, how 'bout a pizza"
5- Synth strings. Midtempo sad with amusing lyrics.
6- *FCC* "gonna be pissed" a couple times. Midtempo folk, literally about a shirt stain. Call-and-response duet w/female guest vocal.
