Indie rock that brings to mind Sebadoh, Archers Of Loaf, early Lemonheads, and other bands from that time frame. I respect the effort here, but Onward Pilgrim, at least on this record, lack the tightness and originality needed to warrant repeated listens. A little more work on the song writing and less emphasis on the guitar wanking. There’s no need to wank this hard unless your name is J Mascis or you have your own pedal named after you. Until then, I’ll stick to Icky Mettle and You’re Living All Over Me.
