This Portland, OR, quartet knows how to get a beleaguered reviewer's attention. They cite the late-'60s Kinks, Pretty Things (in fact, they've recorded "She's a Lover"), Small Faces, and Who's psych-pop classics as their inspirations, and serve up a good, old-fashioned, honest-to-goodness concept LP that's lyrically like these British Invasion heroes — and their later offspring, the Jam.
