Always Good...

Gorky...is...ALWAYS good. I have most of their albums, and if you like one of them, you should like them all, and this one is no different. They're great and consistant without sounding the same on each album; honestly I've never heard a band that was so creative and also consistantly good (usually the goodness is sacrificed when the creativity gets out of control...like perhaps, The Beta Band). The only couple I could think of may be No Doubt (usually surprising) and maybe Radiohead (but they're consistantly melancholy). Basically most of these songs are "gold"...and will have you swaying or tapping your foot. You may as well just buy all their albums. There's always something surprising and infectious on their albums.

the psychotic monkey is melancholy

A gorgeous paean to summer gone by, reminiscing about how much fizzier soda pop was in one's youth, how much more gorgeous the girls. The arrangements remind one of Brian Wilson and Sean O'Hagan -- banjos, theremins, strings, Welsh crooning, all come together in a teenage symphony of loss and longing. Fans of the Beach Boys, the High Llamas, and of high school in the 1970s will love this album.
