I've never heard a band that's so obviously the very definition of indie. The songs are fun, but have the depth of a thimble.
You're right, but it's a good throwaway album, you know?

A fun listen once or twice... then you're done.

Sort of sad then that it was heralded as the most cracking thing since the vinyl record by everyone and their overly-critical grandfather.

Cape Cod is a nice tune.

I found it strange and funny at the same time that College Girl loves Indie music.

Yeah, but that's inevitable in Indiewankerland, where they need some overhyped sensation to wank over every few months or so.

Well, with my iTunes situation still largely unresolved (I have to re-organize everything I downloaded off the blogs), I'm re-listening tonight.

Vagina Envy - Sewer Trout
Bananas Smell Funny Sonata in G - Boo! Hiss! Pfftlb!
Redneck Woman From Planet Mars - Horny Mormons
The Incredibly Blue Moustache of Mr Tinselteeth - Eyeball
Buzzbomb of Pasadena, Kinky Sex Makes The World Go Round, A Child And His Lawnmower - Dead Kennedys

There's actually a band called Horny Mormons? That's great.

Vampire Weekend made me laugh, to be honest. Here today, gone tomorrow.

Indie punk band in the East Bay in the 80's. Decent song, actually, if you like loud, fuzzy non-sensical punk rock.

Occasionally, I truly fall for the record being wanked over. Shins, Franz Ferdinand, White Stripes...all of them beloved in Indiewankerland, and all of them beloved by me as well.

But this...it's just rather boring. I don't know why, but the songs have no...power. Or something. Everything sounds like it was recorded as flatly as possible on a four track. Plus, the singer has that sloppy-yet-somehow-on-key thing going that all indie vocalists do.

I like Franz Ferdinand. Especially their debut album. It's not at all cohesive ... yet I pretty much enjoy the whole thing.

Why am I not surprised?

Now I just wonder if, by "loud, fuzzy", you mean it sounds even worse than half the Dunedin Sound's songs or not ...
