Artsy Rock

This band has the finesse fellow Interpol lacks. Artsy bass lines, flashy guitars, perfect vocals, and poetic lyrics make this a band to look out for. From their reflective post 9-11 single "Lola Stars and Stripes" to their hopeful lullaby "Yesterday Never Tomorrows," these canucks simply ROCK.

Hugely underrated by the 25+ age group. An epic debut; really sweet stuff.

My Recommendations:
Pitty Sing, The Spinto Band, Metric, Hail Social, Interpol, The Killers and The Bravery.

The songs on this album never get boring...

Man, this is one of the first albums I've bought where the majority of the songs are quality ones that don't get boring after a while. Oftentimes when I buy an album, there's really only three or so songs that have staying power in my playlists, but this one has eight.

"Still in Love Song" is a classic, but "Gender Bombs" and "Yesterday Never Tomorrows" are also poignant songs that will stick with you, and "Lola Stars and Stripes", "Love and Death", and "Fevered" have different melodies and tempos from the first three that keep these ones interesting as well. The album is diverse enough that the songs don't sound too much like each other, either.

If you are thinking about getting this album, do so. It's well, well worth it.

great album

this is a great album that is definately worth your washingtons. i think they may have gained a small spike in popularity since their debut on npr but who knows. lola stars and stripes is my personal fav. it just has a good melodic tone and beat. buy this album.
