The first song, “Family Planning,” really sets the mood for this album. It’s totally pop punk, and can tell from this one what to expect on the rest of “Thanks For Listening”: honesty as the number one priority. They’re representing that Bandcamp “honest” tag really well.
“Basement,”the second track, is probably my favorite musically. It’s even got a couple of really heavy breakdowns in there toward the end of the song. “Morning Voice” is my favorite lyrically. It’s the easiest to immediately relate to. Everybody’s been in a situation where they’ve tried way too hard to get something accomplished with somebody.
These brothers are doing great! Sibling bands can really go either way, and I’m glad these dudes seem to work together really well. Go check them out live if you’re in the area, and if you’re not, be sure to head over to their Bandcamp. You can get all five songs on “Thanks For Listening” absolutely free! What a deal. I’m sure they’ll appreciate the download. Check out their Facebook page too. They’ve got some interesting artwork in different places there. Try to convince them to make that sick metal shirt.
