Both of these bands would fit perfectly playing with Altaira, Tiltwheel, and the Dukes of Hillsborough. I Excuse will probably never stop being compared to Leatherface because you can’t ignore the influence, but that’s not a bad thing at all in my book. They’ve cut back from a four- to a three-piece, but they still have a full sound on these songs. Whiskey Sunday is good, and I know I’d love them live, but I’m just not wowed by them yet. Knowing my taste, some of my friends are pretty surprised by that, and maybe there is something to it that I just haven’t nailed down yet because I’m not just listening to the I Excuse side when I put this on.
