|4.0 excellent||Dan Keyes | September 14th 10|
Indie rock gets some backbone. In the era of Animal Collective and Passion Pit, it's refreshing to hear a brand of indie rock that isn't afraid to play with distortion. With definite punk influences and a Franz-esque vocal performance, this album entertains all the way through. While the riffs were great (a la Sonic Youth, minus 2 minutes of feedback), it would have been nice to hear them played out a bit, perhaps sacrificing some of the compact song-lengths. Overall, the composition is good, the execution delivers, and the songs pack energy. Check out Held Taught, Hanged For Treason, and Firedamp for starters.
