Just To Let You Know...

If you haven't already been beaten into the ground about this band through music blogs, you most likely will be by every indie music nerd you know. The Broken West will probably become one of those bands that people will be telling you to buy. They even come from the supposed next (?) music scene of Echo Park/Silver Lake. Well, they are actually right about this one. A little bit of Big Star, a little bit of Wilco circa A.M., and little bit of Teenage Fanclub, these guys have created a twang dusted power-pop gem of an album. No twee indie rock here. It's simply big guitar hooks, hand claps, piano, and harmonies. A perfect album to help pass those winter days till spring comes. Then you will still be listening it through spring and on into summer.
