Beach Slang – “The Things We Do To Find People Who Feel Like Us”

Earnest, hard-driving, big rock anthems.  Driving drums and guitars, coupled with angst-ridden lyrics about typical young-folks issues.  Singer is a veteran of the rock scene which makes this effort more mature sounding than similar/younger bands.  Very Hold Steadyish in that way.  UK Post-punk influenced with a whole lot of Replacements and Guided By Voices.  All makes for a GREAT record.
