WILD MOCCASINS: Skin Collision Past: CD

If The New Pornographers and Sunday’s Best got together and managed to take their dullest, most uninteresting moments and put them together, it would sound something like this. This includes contrasting male/female vocals that sound like a not so appealing version of Kori and Jason from Mates of State. The songs are pretty consistently upbeat, which is cool, but it all comes across as too sappy for my tastes. When I used to run an online zine back in the early 2000s, we used to get a lot of stuff that reminds me of this. I’m just as disinterested now as I was then.
