Haven't heard much of this band yet, but I like what I hear enough to go to their concert on the 13th. I went to Touche Amore tonight and their singer Jeremy was praising this band. It's a rarity when two great bands like Touche Amore and Cheap Girls visit fucking Montana within a week.
Yeah, I had to remind myself that I didn't love My Roaring 20s at first either, but now it's one of my favorite albums. Giant Orange will probably get better with repeated listens - right now some of the songs seem sort of same-y. I guess that's true with most albums, though. Everyone judges things too quickly, including me.
I haven't heard "My Roaring 20s" yet, but "Find Me A Drink Home" is really great. It sounds like what would happen if Dinosaur Jr. had sex with The Posies, which is a neat concept. For everyone interested, this blog has a b-sides collection and an acoustic version of "Find Me A Drink Home" for download. You should all check it out!
