Versus “On the Ones and Threes”

I remember these guys. I think they opened for Sleater-Kinney with the Subdebs. There might have been apples, which would mean it was at the Fillmore, but it’s hard to say at this point. I thought they were OK. I guess I still do. “Invincible Hero” has the same melody as that Franz Ferdinand song that’s on Rock Band that everyone knows.
“Into Blue” sounds like a single and will remind many of Lush. It really doesn’t get much better than this. The male lead takes over on “Gone to Earth,” although the female backing vocals are what carry this tune.
“Erstwhile” is a good story, or at least I assume it is. It’s nearly seven minutes long. Why else would you have a song be that long unless you were telling a really compelling story, right? “Scientists” sounds like a Velocity Girl track. It’s another winner.
If you want another track with the dude singing, the title track is another good one. If he ever gets bored he could be in a She Wants Revenge cover band.
