|Dirty Pretty Things – Waterloo to Anywhere: 3.5 stars
Precon: Don’t know anything about them but the name sounds very familiar. Is it that band with the chick from Gossip Girl who wears a lot of eye makeup? I don’t think they’re from London. Maybe it’s that weird band that Chris sent out a video for a while back. No, that was the Dirty Pornographers. I think it might be the name of a show on ABC Family Channel that Lauren watches even though she doesn’t really like it. Yeah that makes sense. Glad I figured it out.
Favorite Track: The Gentry Cove. Hell yeah a sea shanty.
They remind me of so many other people. They’re like some kind of Frankenstein’s monster band. While it sounds good and cohesive, I’d have to listen to this a bit more to see if they really have their own sound. I enjoyed it overall and had fun remembering some stuff I haven’t heard in a while. Here are the things that came to mind while I was listening.
