dude. There's a new Weezer album out today, and I listened to your band first. Take that as the highest of high NR compliments.

y'know that thing when a friend makes some kind of art and you're kind of nervous to check it out because you know you will have to say *something* and you're like "ugh what if I don't like it? I need to be honest..." ? Well, all that anxiety left me within the first few moments.

You guys should be really proud of this. It's really really good. For realsies. Going back to Weezer - I'm always proud to share my love of a band that people hate. So you know I'm telling you the truth here. I don't pretend to like stuff that I don't.

Kelly's voice is GD lovely. Soft, vulnerable but not cloying. And it fits the tonal quality of the instumentation perfectly. Fittingly, your own voice juxtaposes against her in a really interesting way.

"I'll Leave Laughing" is a great opener. Really understated. And flows well into "Come Clean." "Lucia" is really pretty. Reminds me a bit of maybe a Moe Tucker VU track, or something Georgia would've sang on a YLT record. "Acado" is fucking weird, in a good way. Which brings me to a point that while all the songs here feel like they belong together, there's no samey-ness that can bog down a lot of bands. "Somethings" is like an 80s rock-pop thing. Reminds me a bit of like the Sentridoh version of Bryan Adams' "Run To You" or something. Speaking of influence, because we all try to draw these lines, I can't help but here an 80's indie vibe... like I'm thinking of Joy Division or Echo & The Bunnymen - at least in the guitar tone?

Anyway dude, you say this is maybe the only thing you'll release? Why? This is such a strong intro to this duo. Y'all should really keep at it.
