MIGHTY FINE, THE: In Revival: CD

I find one-sheets that accompany CDs endlessly entertaining. This isn’t the worst one I have read by far, but at one point I was encouraged to call this “literature rock.” I wouldn’t call it that. I also wouldn’t call it “vintage rock-n-roll.” The “recommended if you like” section includes Against Me! and Hot Water Music. I could see that, as I am not a fan of those bands. Vocalist Brook Thompson does well with the gravel-laced vocals and the music is well recorded and competent. It doesn’t stand out to me, but if you are esoteric about Hot Water Music, you might enjoy this “well-crafted take on vintage rock-n-roll.”
