Very talented. Good vocals, great layering musicianship, good songwriting. The songs sound similar, but they they're better than 95% of popular music.

Much prefer constant strumming to boring synths.

their first album was decent. not really much variation or originality, but it was still enjoyable. second album is just the same thing.

I think Paste has become a pretty respected music source nationwide over the past 5-10 years. And when they went strictly online, I think that probably widened their base even more.


Fun fact - I live less than a mile from their offices when they were in print and almost bought one of their computers when they were selling everything in their office. I did pick up a couple cd's though.

I tried to like them cause some reason I thought I was supposed to. After a short while I realized they they sucked.

I had no idea it was an Atlanta thing. I don't think its big, but I've always thought it was just an online mag that covered more "roots" based indie rock. Which is pretty much my tastes now. I think it's a less pretentious Pitchfork.

I have yet to really listen to their second album in depth but I happen to believe that their first album is one of the better debut albums out there

I just got their second album and it is amazing.

You're right walt. They don't suck. They are talented musicians. But their music is redundant. Hard to tell one song from the next. They should be more diverse and creative considering the musical ability they have. Just mho

They started in Atlanta(specifically Decatur). Used to be in print for probably 5-6 years and then went strictly on line about 2 years ago maybe.
