Not infrequently, I find myself more than a little mystified by the prevailing winds & whims of the MP3 blogging community. A couple years ago, Minneapolis' TAPES 'N TAPES was all the rage, it seemed, everywhere but in my house.
April 8 will see the release of their new album, WALK IT OFF, and I continue to struggle to understand their appeal. Even my favorite track from the new disc, "Conquest," never quite delivers on the promise of its terrific, skittering guitar and infectious backbeat.
Oh well. "To each his/her own," as the saying is wont to say....
