This little gem of alternative rock came out last October, just when I was in the middle of moving, and I only sat down to listen to it the other day. Too bad, because its angsty folky geeky jangly dissonant vibe would have been the perfect soundtrack to my hellish move.
Some people find Nathan Willet's voice annoying, others worship it. It's perfect for songs such as "Hang Me Up to Dry" or "We Used to Vacation," perhaps more on the annoying side of the spectrum on cuts like "God, Make Up Your Mind," sung in his falsetto. Or maybe you'll love his falsetto.
I don't know if they're really doing anything new here, and I'm kind of easy for bands that give me the jangling chiming guitar sound, but their music is clever and fun.
"Hang Me Up to Dry" is the free download of the week on iTunes if you want to check it out for free.
