FRESHKILLS: Self-titled: CD

Dec 30, 2008

In many of their songs, the chorus is too repetitive, like a song they play at Forever 21. Someone should tell them that just because you say a line twice, it doesn’t make it a good chorus. I think this music may be hipster music and with them being from Brooklyn, I’ll bet they get thick hipster crowds at their shows. I sure as hell can’t see myself at one of their shows on purpose. This album is not horrible; it’s tolerable, in fact, but missing something essential. There is no catch, no pull, and no hook to keep me from skipping to the next track. If you wear a trendy vest or a really sweet diagonally striped tie out on Saturdays, you may be into this band.
