Full Of Hooks

While their name -- Suburban Kids With Biblical Names -- means very little to me, it's charming, I must admit. Listening to any lyrics penned by these Swedes will certainly be confusing (none of their lyrics make sense, and if they do, you're not listening to them correctly), but that's part of the fun. They're all jangle guitar pop, sweet harmonies, and cute-for-imprecision actual delivery. Yeah, I definitely think these guys could have mixed their album #3 a bit better, as they never seem to decide on just how much bass they want and how loud they want those vocals to get and that sort of thing. So the quaintness is very nice, but maybe a few singles is enough.
Regardless, "Rent A Wreck" is certainly one of those singles that will keep your toe tapping for days on end. The only reason I stopped playing this non-stop was because one of my headphone buds blew out (and I'm not into mono).
