Album Review

A lot has gone down in the Get Set Go camp since the release of their 2003 debut, So You've Ruined Your Life. First off, except for leader Mike TV, the entire band has been overhauled. And most serious of all, TV battled a serious drug addiction during the interim period. As a result, Get Set Go's sophomore full-length effort, Ordinary World, is an incredibly introspective record, as TV has opted to go the "autobiographical route" in his lyrics (especially when he talks about "smoking black" on "Get Thru the Day" and "drinking Drano" on "Suicide"). Also, Get Set Go opt to forgo the pop-punk sound of their debut in favor of more stripped-down, mostly acoustic-based approaches (akin to their heroes, the Violent Femmes). But TV's wit, quirkiness, and snappy melodies are all still present (along with his often warbling vocals), as evidenced on such tracks as "I Hate Everyone" and "Lift Me Up." Sometimes it takes a band several releases to mature musically and take a bold step. In Get Set Go's case, it took two albums, three years, and as reflected in the majority of the songs' lyrics, a lot of hard living.

Biography

Formed: Highland Park, CA

Genre: Alternative

Years Active: '00s

Revolving around songwriter Mike TV, Get Set Go's quirky rock consists of dismal, self-loathing lyrics set to sunny melodies. In fact, Mike TV's goal was to have lyrics so dreadful, yet memorable, that his grandparents would disapprove. Inspired by such greats as Guided by Voices, the Beach Boys, Weezer, and the Mr. T Experience, he and his band released a debut, So You've Ruined Your Life, in 2003. The follow-up modified the band's sound, going from nearly pop-punk to indie rock with Ordinary World....
