DEPT OF ENERGY: Faster: CD

This album sounds like preppy coffee shop music in the vein of Ben Folds. It’s got quirky lyrics like, “Mind over matter but what if matter wins?” It’s got cello, banjo, slide guitar and organ for the hi-brow intellectual musician. However, I think the band inserted the organ instrument into the album to substitute for what these songs lack in the real organ department… “That’s what she said.” –N.L. Dewart
