Respectable jangle from 1994 San Jose

"Surprisingly beefy in parts, predictably jangly in most, this sole album from this San Jose, CA trio, 1994, shows the sound of indie bands influenced by REM and college radio respectably. I had heard a standout track on a Slumberland Records compilation years ago, by far the best song on the record, and looked for this release. The last track, Supernova, shows that the group could shed their alternative-early-90s influences and rock out in extended fashion as did their Bay Area forebears twenty-five years earlier.
There's nothing earthshattering on this disc, but solid performances, no embarassingly dated recording styles, and a devotion to songcraft make this, if not truly original, then still a fine example of garage-band ambition combined with a knowledge of tunefulness and modest yet confident, accomplishment. Fans of the janglier side of the indie scene will like this unassuming but self-assured set of cheery tunes."
