Sleeping in the Aviary “You and Me, Ghost”

October 2, 2011

How am I not supposed to think of these guys as a Weezer ripoff? Maybe that’s what they want, though. You can tell from the whimsical nature of the music and lyrics that the band takes itself a little less seriously than it could. The loose attitude removes whatever pretense remains with these goofballs.
The title track, “Are You Afraid of Being Poor?” and “Pathetic Housewife Remembering Her First Martini” are the standout tracks here. Fun times with falsettos and a mix-and-match of singing and ’60s mod-group harmony more complex than the New England Patriots offense dominate throughout.
