A perfectly blanced off-kilteredness keeps this album bright, funny, occasionally joyful, and playful. "Dress Like Your Idols," unsurprisingly, is full of allusions to 90s indie-rock giants like Pavement, Modest Mouse, and Built To Spill. There's nothing new, noteworthy, or special on this record; just some good, mostly straightforward retro whimsy-rock. Check this out if you like any of the aforementioned bands, but be warned; this album is much cleaner than anything any of those bands ever released. If this does not deter you, dive on in for 37 minutes of nostalgic toe-tapping.
