So don't ask me to remember what was on that first album. Ask away about the new one though, Ostrich (Aluminum Cat 99692). It's a snide view of life living inside some infectious combo power pop-rock.
The songs get to you and have plenty of girth and variety. The musicianship is very solid. The guitar players that solo are doing some nice things--there is more than one? I am not sure but if you know the band you can tell me in the comments and I will duly thank you for that.
It's like Steely Dan and the Talking Heads reinvented themselves as Crack the Sky. That's a fine thing, though before I heard this album I would not have known it.
Surprises can be good.
