BROTHERS GROSS, THE: Time to Go Now: CD

Mar 04, 2010

Simple, yet solid ‘77 style pop punk a la FM Knives from this Indiana three-piece that includes an actual set of Brothers Gross, as the name suggests. The more rocking numbers explore the area mined out by the skinny tie sneer of 999, while an ever-present tambourine glosses everything over with a pop sheen. More contemplative tunes, like “When the Lights Are Low” flirt with synths and female backing vocals, giving off a new wavey Buzzcocks feel to them. More natural than nostalgic, this is a fun listen.
