hardest part of this review? RIYL. if anyone has any better suggestions, please give the people something to listen to. bail this fool out!

EDIT: Eric from The Jakes advised me that the band relates most to are The Strokes, Coldplay, Kings of Leon, and maybe Interpol.

Everybody needs to check this band out. For the past month I've been addicted to them.
Good review, by the way. You described the overall feel very well.

Yeah, they're definitely worth checking out. Great live show and very catchy...lovely review.

I honestly can't think of any better RIYL's, though. You're right, that's a tough one.

great review... and "Cough Syrup," the one song you didn't bring up, is my personal favorite.

saw these guys live two years ago, and i can't believe this is the same band. great stuff.

in my opinion for RIYL you could've put Rooney just b/c of the vocals a little bit. Am I the only one feeling that.
