Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. – It’s a Corporate World (review + video + stream)

As disappointed as I am that I am missing/missed the Dale Earnhardt Jr. Jr. concert in Cincinnati, I can’t complain about camping with the fam and relaxin’ after a taxin’ finals week.  Also, it doesn’t kill my excitement about the new album.  I gave them a chance after hearing their cover of a Beach boys song “God Only Knows“.  That had me hooked, I’m totally a sucka for some solid vocal harmonies.  This was no exception.  The tracks on this album all have a certain amount of intimacy to them that makes you want to get closer to your speakers (or just turn it up).  It’s really quite warm.  The electronic instrumentation on tracks like “An Ugly Person on a Movie Screen” got me smirkin from the start.  The slightly distorted vocals color the tracks really nicely, along with some other subtle effects that let me know that these guys know what they’re doing and not just up to some cheap gimmicks.  Give these guys a solid watch or listen.  Preeze.

For fans of The Drums, Surf Rock(kinda), quirky people, vintage instruments, NASCAR (jksc)

The final sale on this album/band was this ridiculous KCRW session.
