Cementing The Seams

The Plot Sickens


I've probably heard this record as much or more than any other this year (probably not actually) but never intentionally.  My girlfriend played it for me as many times as I can count, and she was onto something.  Totally catchy indie-pop, a lot of memorable songs, utterly unboring.  This band used to be called The Jakes but for some reason decided to change their name from something lame to something totally inexplicable.  I've realized that I hate comparing bands to other bands unless the resemblence is completely obvious to me, which is to say, I can't really think of a band to compare Young The Giant to.  I'm certain it can be done, it's not really groundbreaking stuff here, just better than most.
