Okay, so I remember the days when I would go into the record store and buy records that I knew nothing about but liked the cover art. Sometimes I would love the record forever, like when I bought LUSH’s Split, and sometimes I’d be disappointed forever, like when I bought Electric Pea Pod (don’t ask). These days, sometimes you never even see the cover art... especially if you’re downloading the music. I mention the thing about cover art 'cause a 17 year-old kid wrote that he bought the CD because he liked the cover and a promo sticker that read "echoes the likes of Tom Waits and The Pogues." I think I still have my share of those innocent music adventures to this day.

Anyway, I don’t think the band sounds much like Tom Waits or The Pogues, but they sure have a good folky tune goin’ on. The first song makes me think of a guy singing his heart out in a pair of worn jeans, cowboy boots, and a dirty wifebeater tank top.

I think they sound a lot like The Strokes, Kings of Leon, and Mando Diao. Ultimately, my favorite song on the album is "Hang Me Out To Dry." It’s a bit on the slow side, but it’s super chill and sounds like it’d be used in a 20th century cowboy movie. - Amylu Meneses
