Favourite Song on Album:


Listen to This Album When You:

Want a folk band that kinda kicks ass.

Thoughts on Album Cover:

Love it, it fits their weird style/would look amazing in a collection.

Want to Own on Vinyl?:

Yeah, I kinda have a thing for good folk on vinyl.

Final Thoughts:

I love weird lead vocals, and this lead is all kinds of weird. I love the mix of his voice and the instrumentals. Anthem For The Already Defeated is so friggin’ good. I couldn’t stop listening to it when I first discovered it. Sometimes Rock Plaza Central makes me feel like I’m about to go make a mob hit, sometimes they make me feel like I’m slowly dancing in a dimly lit room.
