ALBUM REVIEW: THE OTHER STARS W/ ‘WE WERE KIDS’
Remember The Mountain Goats? Well if they were ever to be reincarnated then it would definitely be in The Other Stars. These guys share their love of cliche and have a similar, yet completely, unique vocal style. What makes them different however, is the intricacy of their music. We Were Kids, as the title suggests, is really reflective of youth: It’s packed with teen angst and could’ve beens. The opening track, You Looked Better at the Party, exemplifies all of this and really sets up for the rest of the album. If you’re a fan of folk-punk then this one is worth a listen.
