instantly relatable, earning my trust within the first 30 seconds of the first song. The vocals are mesmerizing in such an odd way. As though the kid next door you thought wasn't really talented at anything became the lead singer of a band. A really cool band at that. The lyrical content is the bread and butter for me. I compare Pinegrove's approach to the likes of The Hold Steady in a huge way. Not the music, but the approach with the lyrics. Craig Finn's little brother or something?
