Scuzzy, garagey punk/pop from Bowling Green, KY, all with a New Pornographers-esque slickness. Really, really catchy. It's done by a bunch of teenagers, and it sounds it-- most songs feature dueling girl/boy vocals, but it's best described as "affable," not sultry. Complex song structures, with a lot of weird bridges and stuff. Boozy and stupid and sunshiney, but mostly just a lot of fun.

Note: this is RIDICULOUSLY catchy in spots-- I couldn't stop listening to it when it first came out.

No FCCs detected.

SIMILAR TO: Pixies, White Stripes, Black Lips, New Pornographers, Spoon, Arcade Fire (the bombast, at least…)

1. (2:25) **** Girl vox, with sing-a-long chorus. Best hooks on the record. "Ooh, I'm not a baby no more..."
2. (2:54) *** Bombastic, driving rock/pop. "All I want to do, is lay with you..."
3. (2:28) * The scuzziest track-- a little TOO boozy and stupid. (The lyrics on this one are exquisitely dumb.)
4. (2:43) *** Skeletal Casio bossa nova backbeat, with fades into swaying bombastic power-pop chorus. "Our love keeps our bodies moving on..."
5. (2:31) *** "I Bottomed Out..." Thrashing guitars, "ah-ah-ah-ah-ah" harmonizing. Slightly darker timbre.
6. (2:55) ** Bright, speedy. Chorus broken between vocals word-by-word.
7. (3:35) *** Downtempo countryish ballad-- "That's my baby..."
8. (2:56) * Happy guitarwork, more uptempo.
9. (3:27) * Minor key stomper, very reverb.
10. (2:46) * Chanting rock with dominating guitars...
11. (3:13) Vaporous, not quite there.
12. (3:27) Not the strongest finisher-- if it isn't clear, stay towards the beginning of the record. Spacey fade-out.
