I can't believe this band doesn't have it's own thread yet.

full length was a bit of a let down after last years EP (all 4 songs made the full length and are the better songs on it), but they've got a ton of potential (mostly Brittany, the band is just serviceable live for me)

So you're saying they don't deserve their own thread.

i think that their drummer is quite good. nothing flamboyant but he has the right attitude for this kind of music ie. steady and soulful time-keeping with the occasionnal memorable roll. the rest of the band is also above average but there's no doubt that Brittany is the key ingredient here.

Yeah...that's no secret, and it's also the key reason why I thought they were enjoyable live.

They just sound good to me. I wish I had seen them when they were in Denver.
