SIDEKICKS, THE: Awkward Breeds: CD

Oh shit, have The Sidekicks gone alternative? Fuck yeah. I mean, it’s still very much The Sidekicks, who used to be just slightly folky rock-playing kids. I mean, it’s not it’s drastically different, but there’s a slow evolution to it compared to some of their earlier stuff. For example, the whole thing starts with a mess of feedback and the singer is kind of starting to sing like he’s in Weezer (who I’m normally not into, but it doesn’t bother me here). I’m into it.
