These cats’ first release since a name change and a bit of a lineup shuffle (you may have heard them in their previous incarnation: the Modern Machines!) sounds just how we all expected and hoped it would. There’s that same undeniable songwriting with a bit more Westerberg at times and a hint more Mellencamp at others. Stick-in-your-head gems that fly by way too fast. We need an LP from the Used Kids ASAP, so get on it guys and gal.
