Otra de las grandes sorpresas de finales de año. Otro debut de una banda compuesta por gente de Guided by voices, Luna, Dambuilders y que en su disco cuenta con innumerables colaboraciones.
Son 10 notables canciones. Estas dos son una buena muestra de como son capaces de combinar melodías y estribillos contagiosos. Perfect pop songs.
