Alternative/Indie Rock

The entire band stole away to a remote seaside town to compose all of the 15 songs on this epic third album. Instead of bandleader Josh Hodges working as the primary songwriter as on prior LPs, every lyric, riff, and beat was created collectively, resulting in some of their most refined and focused songs.

Music Sounds Better with You

March 22, 2011

Alternative Pop/Rock

The trio took extra care on Music Sounds Better with You to whittle down their stockpile of songs until they were left with what they felt were the ten best, then polished them in the studio until they shone like diamonds. The arrangements are light but rich, with loads of well-placed keys, horns, and synth strings dotting the mix, the vocal performances hit all the right emotional notes, and the songs themselves are memorably melancholy and sweet.
