"...but they're *so much* better to see live! I saw them last year at a show with Dirty Pretty Things (check out that band's debut album, Waterloo to Anywhere), and they were fun to watch and their performance of the music seemed much more raw and action-packed than 'Underhanded Romance'. The production of the album seems a bit off, which was the same problem that I had with The White Stripes' Icky Thump; with both, it's a case of fantastic material but too clean and polished of a sound. I don't know what I would think if I heard it without having seen them live first, but I can definitely say that they came across differently, and better, in concert.
"Nickles and Dimes", "Next to Argyle", and "Ghetto Ways" are my favorite tracks. Scissors For Lefty is able to maintain a proper balance between a cool retro sound and and modern, up-to-date style. I can't even think of any current band to compare them to! The songwriting is interesting, the beats are catchy...it'll be interesting to see what direction this band goes in the future."
