Having a hard time coming up with words to describe Shinobu's third full-length, a melange of noodley guitar parts, heartbreaking lyrics, punk onslaught, a whole lot of catchy melodies and a few irritating ones. Whoa, there's a whole lot of words. Anyway, I found this quote from Buddyhead:
"It’s Ted Leo backed by Pavement, on crack."
That just about sums it up. This is one of my favorite records from one of my favorite bands. Download it for free here and buy a copy because that's more fun anyway.
