ELWAY: Better Whenever: CD

Nov 02, 2015

Let it be known that Elway is the emo-rock straw that broke this camel’s back. Nothing new here. I’m hearing some Hot Water Music and some wistful heartland rock. I’m sure there are more contemporary reference points, but I didn’t like this type of stuff the first time around and just keep picturing eighteen-year-old sad boys in flannels and hoodies playing this while driving back to their parents’ place after spending the weekend at their girlfriend’s new college.
