Öffnen Sie iTunes, um Hörproben zu wählen und Musik zu kaufen und zu laden.


Bob Nanna's first album as the City on Film, 2004's I'd Rather Be Wine Drunk, was an interesting but somewhat half-baked experiment in spontaneous songwriting, supposedly written, recorded, and mixed in a single afternoon. Rather than try to replicate that album's hotel-room intimacy, the former Braid and Hey Mercedes frontman wisely chose to find himself a band. Even better, the band he found features most of Seattle indie rockers Minus the Bear, whose propulsive guitar-driven attack gives Nanna a much-needed kick in the pants.

The record's only real flaw is its frustratingly short length.
