got this for such a bargain and works fine on itunes and sounds great on all devices, no problem with receiving it either, came nice and early, well worth the money

Light and engaging pure pop,definately "preppy" in style , reminicent of the likes of Five Man Electrical Band from the late 60's. Light and airy and definately not to be taken seriously. Music for the summer. Enjoy a breath of summer and sunshine and fresh air.

When you give a band a name like this you leave yourself wide open for people approaching the stuff expecting Goth-a-go-go, or at least something very dark and atmospheric but - surprise! - it's not. Nope - it's some bunch of Americans who no doubt liked the name and decided they were damn well gonna keep it (man) and have issued this 10 track self-produced début album.
One thing it's not is rock, and one other thing it's not is especially "commercial" - the 10 tracks jolly along at a reasonable pace, there's elements of bands like They Might Be Giants, a little Talking Heads, some white boy reggae (although I'm not overly convinced about the Strokes references) and kudos to them for integrating distinctly non-rock instrumentation (strings! Cool..). First single Mansard Roof is probably the weirdest thing on here, although a couple of others aren't far behind in the weirdo stakes.
All in all it's a cautious recommendation - I would strongly suggest a policy of try before you buy, and bear in mind it's also extremely short - well under 30 minutes in total for its 10 tracks. Not one for me that would be glued to my turntable but a distracting occasional listen.

You would expect something different from the name but it is good indie pop infused with some synth and reggae. This is a great debut album because it has lots of good tunes all the way through it's short 34 minutes but it's worth buying just for oxford comma,Apunk and mansard roof. I reccomend it asit is an easy to listen to tuneful album
