Influenced by others but not derivitive,
This review is from: Howl Howl Gaff Gaff (Audio CD)
In parts this album steals from The Strokes, there's an intro from The Kings of Leon and there's the cracked voice of Conner Oburst (Bright Eyes). Some odd sounds and even clapping on one of the tracks. Drums feature well on a couple of songs (Arcade Fire influence?). Despite all references to other artists it retains an individuality that makes it a class album. It's easy to get into and there's enough originality to make you want to keep playing it over and over.
This is one of 6 CDs bought on the same day and this is the one that gets all the air time.
