Yes, they've added drums to their songs and I think it has made them so much better. I liked their first album a little, but found some of the vocals annoying, and songs kinda boring.
With this second album, their songs are a lot more interesting. Like, the first couple of tracks are really strong...and then it unfortunately gets a little stale towards the middle, then picks up with the last two songs. It's a short album (28 minutes), but I think it's very fun. Corner Store is probably my favorite off their latest.
Yeah, I much prefer it to their older sound, drums are always a good thing in my opinion. I know what you mean about the vocals being annoying, they almost sounded a bit like Tegan and Sarah to me, which isn't my thing at all, so I was impressed that they sounded much better this time around. It's almost too short, but very enjoyable.
My bad, never saw your original reply - seems like you all have it well handled, but in short, yep, think it's their best work to date.^^ As to the vocals, let's remember how young they are, the voices kind of, dare I say, represent youth? I assume that'll change a bit over time.
