Hype is a fatal thing, 1 July 2008
I heard nothing but praise for quite a while before i tried this. I kept hearing things like "It's not the normal indie music that is being churned out these days". But after a listen I realised that it is just that and what these people should have been saying was "It is the normal indie music that is being churned out these days".
Theres nothing special about it. Nothing fresh really.
This may seem like harsh criticism, but i'm not saying it's terrible, just that it's definately not new. If you're happy listening to the wombats and stuff like that, with no real experimentation, then you'll be golden here.
I think that this stems from the fact that I've got an odd taste in music, I started out listening to stuff like this, Oasis, Travis et.c, but eventually I moved to pastures new. I really like experimentation, if it's not a bit different it doesn't last long in my playlists.
To sum up, this is OK, but nothing innovative like the praisers would have you believe.
