I get scared when someone gives me something to listen to. I’m pretty picky, and when I put that personal connection of someone handing something to me, I get a little nervous. In this case, I was given this by someone (but this was during Fest, so I’m kind of foggy on who he is) right before (again foggy) Radon was about to start. I ran off before really looking at it. When I got home, I was happy to see that 1) I still had it and 2) it was a band that I’d heard of through A.D.D.’s To Live and Die in Tampa Bay comp (but under their earlier name of Chest Rockwell). It’s good. It’s really good. It’s got that Tampa sound that reminds me of The Tim Version, but definitely walks its own path. This has been getting a lot of play since the Fest, and I’ll be looking for their full-length release (which the notes say has been recorded with three of the songs here and six others in about ten hours, which is awesome).
