I'm sure the Pavement comparisons are laid on thick with this band.
Right from the opening strokes of "Summer Song" we can see the
Malkmusian verbosity and tin-can-songsmithing influence. It's cheery,
we're-having-fun pop that's very unassuming and all the better for it
- could have been recorded in a garage, but that's exactly where you'd
expect to hear this type of music coming from. "A Molehill Is A Mound"
is a softer and lower in energy, and charming in its laidback melodic
charm. It's music for a lazy Sunday afternoon, rolling along on a
comfortable bassline while the singer keeps things moving with his
vaguely Southern drawl. Nice stuff from The Morningsides, I wonder
what's coming next...
