SYNDICATE
Posted by: Dave on March 7, 2005 at 10:23 pm

Sound: Jangly, angular guitar rock of The Strokesicon and Televisionicon meets Southern twang and stomp
Notes: Produced by Ethan Johns, who’s also produced Ryan Adamsicon, Counting Crowsicon, The Jayhawksicon, Rufus Wainwrighticon and Kings of Leon’s debut album
Heavy Rotation track:The Bucketicon
Medium Rotation tracks: Razzicon“; “Softicon“; “Day Old Bluesicon
Listen when: It’s time for a good ‘ol urban hoedown
Recommended: If you loved their first album (see Youth and Young Manhood, my #3 album of 2003), you’ll wonder where all the great hooks went. Plus, touring the world has taken some of the backwoods out of them. Still fun, but missing the raw and snappy goodness of their debut. The second half is better than the first.
Grade: B-
