Hmmm, Crystalised sounds cool. I dig me some male/female dual vocals.

Gave the whole record a shot, guess I'm going to have to miss the boat on this one. While minimalism is often the way to go for new bands, this album is simply too sparse, and the songs tease the listener without actually offering much. I liked Shelter and Night Time a lot though, those were nice.

Holy shit, this thing is gooooooood. Only complaint? The chick isn't as hot as her voice leads one to believe. Still though. Fucking awesome stuff.

Welp, they're playing here November 19. Thing is, they're merely the support act for Friendly Fires.

Eh, I'll go anyway.

You've said "welp" at least twice today. I love when you accurately capture your homespun, twangy way of talking via text.

There have been a few "y'alls" peppered in lately too. Look out.

i like it is pleasant. i've been looking for more pleasant stuff to listen to at night when i'm reading at work, stuff that won't wake up whoever i'm working with if they're napping...turns out not everyone finds angry hardcore to be soothing.
