San Francisco lawyer... suburban dad... former federal official... and just a random music-obsessed guy who has acquired way too many albums. But as a diversion, I'm picking one of them each day and sharing a few thoughts.
Been pretty tied up lately with some family visits, but since I skipped a few days I thought I'd drop in a quick album post here. Pulled this one out recently, one of my favorites from the past decade. Perfect recreations of 90s indie rock, shades of Pavement and Yo La Tengo and New Zealand kiwi rock bands like the Clean, polished up a bit for the new millennium. London-based, but still sounding kinda American, with skewed guitar rock, sometimes blissed-out with the distortion pedal for fizzy noise pop, sometimes slower, cleaner, more melodic meanders.
