Saintseneca – Such Things

Columbus, OH band Saintseneca’s latest album Such Things is a great collection of lo-fi, melodic folk punk songs, with sitar flourishes on a few like “The Awefull Yawn” and “Necker Cube”. Lots of catchy, enjoyable songs on this album, but the clear standout is “River”, which pairs grim lyrics with a buoyant lead guitar riff. Many reviews of the album have compared this album to Neutral Milk Hotel, not just in the sound of the band but the lyrical content as well, not at all a bad thing.
