20 Minute Loop are/were (unfortunately) one of the most unrecognized sources of brillance in San Francisco. All their albums are fantastic. This one was a grower for me, but now it may be my favorite. Great lyrics. Relentless hooks. Amazing male/female harmonies. Just the right blend of pop and quirk. God, I love them.
Probably my favorite album of theirs. You can hear a lot of their influences (Slint, Polvo, Trumans Water) all over it, but the songs are constructed like tanks. You could even say they're fresh. You could even say they're fresher than the Fresh Prince.
