JayOwl...if you like Death Cab...and you think The Shins are pretty good, I have to ask you...have you ever heard of Modest Mouse?
No, I haven't. My 90s knowledge doesn't go much further than Oasis, Blur, Take That, No Doubt and a few others. Plus quite a few that started
in the late 90s. I'll give them a listen though.
They are another American band...been around since the early/mid 90's and I really like their music, mainly cus they have that quirk factor that I like. You might want to give them a try if you have not heard them...they might be up your alley. Here are some representative samples
Those video is so 90s! I don't know what it is about them. They just sparks a lot of familiarity.
I really like the guitary/rocky sound. Sounds like a talented band. I could easily get used to them, given a bit of time for it to grow on me. No, I do really like it. I like the first one the most I think.
One thing though.. in some ways it doesn't seem entirely serious- if that makes sense? I don't know why. Maybe it's the style of music I heard on the radio or at school when I was 4, 5, 6, 7 and I accosiate it with that age subconciously. Not saying that's a bad thing. Can't have serious all the time.
I'm probably making no sense to anyone else, but my excuse is that it's late. I'm going to bed now.
