WIFEY: Salt Sugar Fat: CD

Stuff that I looked into online about these guys claims that they play alt-country, but I don’t see it. In my mind, this is a really good rock’n’roll record. It sounds like a twangier, good-humored version of the sound of Tim-era Replacements, but without the bitterness and muted sorrow. At five songs, this was far too short for me. I felt cheated by the brevity so I’m looking forward to hearing more from these guys. Well done, lads!
