Album Review

Palaxy Tracks' cover of Leonard Cohen's "Seems So Long Ago, Nancy" suggests the band is reaching for something outside its own sleepy indie rock, though really, it's just one melancholy section that finds its home with the rest of Twelve Rooms.

It probably won't inspire a lot of people to write short stories themselves and it's not as haunting as it wants to be, but Twelve Rooms does hold a certain degree of drama that unfolds with closer examination.
