JEREMY NAIL AND THE INCIDENTS: Self-titled: CDEP

Call me Tim Yohannan, but this is not punk! This is one of those very serious singer/songwriter endeavors, or at least that’s how I interpreted it. Three songs with lyrics like, “All I hear inside my head/ is a forgotten child’s cry.” I’m guessing they’re going for some sort of late-period Paul Westerberg meets Tom Petty thing. Yikes. If this were a cereal, it’d be Kashi. Stop taking yourself so seriously! You’re a cereal!
