This band kicks ass. I can't believe it took me until 2013 to find them! Ah well - better late than never. I agree with starblood - that slide guitar is summer in the country- but then again every post rock band uses slide guitar in their music ; o. Ya they sound just like any other band, lol!
As an MBV fan for a long long time, I have to I love the reinvention, an excellent slanted take on it. The only thing I can think of with a similar different view of something so seminal, is Globo doing The Fall's Nation's saving grace.
Don't understand why people are so bent out of shape over them doing a cover of an album. Bands do covers all the time, so what's the big fuss? You hate it, or you like MBV version better, then don't listen to the Japancakes version. I take it as an artistic interpretation of music they like/have heard.
