ONSIND: Dissatisfactions: CD

Jul 21, 2011

For some reason, I always prepare to hate any hippie-punk that’s sent my way. I don’t know why. I mean, I’m certainly not wild about TBIAPB or Defiance, OH, but man… Ghost Mice’s Europe? That record is a ten. And, thankfully, Onsind lean way more in Chris Clavin’s particular stripped-down, catchy-as-hell, melodic direction than toward those other gravelly-voiced hippie-crusts. Super-sincere, adorable, acoustic pop punk songs that reminds me a bit of Gordon Gano’s Army (due in large part to their accents, no doubt) meets (and don’t get bummed out on this) Swiss Army Romance-era Dashboard Confessional (and for the record… I love that shit. Ya, that’s right.). A very pleasant surprise.
