Sports “Sports”

October 30, 2011

This is the perfect record to review while watching sports. This band reminds me of Elvis Costello with a modern sound. I mean, when Costello was new he had a modern sound, at the time. Sports sounds like him but with a modern sound for today. OK.
“Started So Tall” starts the album, and it makes me think of Squeeze. The other good tracks are “Emily, Frankly” and the last one, “Disappear.” This last one has a bit of ’60s power pop in it. If I listen to it just right, I feel as if I’m watching the end of an episode of Murphy Brown. There’s just enough Motown going on.
Lots of fun, short songs on this one.
