YOUNG LIVERS: The New Drop Era: CD

Mar 27, 2008

I want to like these guys more than I really do. They have that passionate, Hot Water Music thing going on—it sounds like they’re playing their asses off, and they’re probably onto some deep shit—but I just never catch myself with the urge to throw this on. I think part of my problem with this band, and Hot Water Music for that matter, is that I never really understand what their lyrics are about. Bands can be as obscure or transparent with their lyrics as they want, but sometimes I feel like I’m listening to a million metaphors about desperation that I don’t quite get or relate to.
