DELAY: Plain Language: Cassette

With two particularly high-pitched singers and poppy punk songs, Delay might not be for everyone. But I don’t buy it. It takes a couple listens for Plain Language to really sink it, but once it does, these songs stay stuck in your head. So much so, that multiple times I’ve had to literally go put something on my stereo because I’ve been singing one of these songs to myself all day. Thoughtful lyrics range from the love of girls, the love of friends, and a general concern about life, and it’s my favorite record of the year.
