    I recently discovered Beerjacket through 'Animosity' and must say, i'm quite impressed! Matt Berninger is not wrong in his statement. Seriously, it is hard to believe how much he sounds like Elliott Smith, it's rather uncanny!

    Thank you for listening to Beerjacket. I never usually communicate via but I thought I'd say hello. You should also go to the site where you can download 2009's 'Animosity', as well as FREE downloads of a cover of Springsteen's 'Dancing In The Dark' and an exclusive new track called 'Island', all in a variety of high-quality formats. Thanks for listening...

    I was impressed by this dude when I saw him in Glasgow last Friday, opening for JAPW. Good job, I loved it.

    i'm in love with 'Violent'. absolutely incredible. saw you in Bloc too by the way, last week. great gig! the new tunes sound great... Sad Circus is another favourite. and then the old songs still sounded fantastic, like Grand Plans, and The Blues, in particular.

    Sounds like a more pop sensible Bright Eyes, IMO.
