Kepler
Attic Salt 12”
Oscarson
Street: 05.06
Kepler = The Wallflowers + Dawes

This is probably one of the most generic albums I’ve ever heard. I tried to like it. I tried desperately to search for something unique and interesting about it, but I couldn’t. It sounds like every mellow-rock and indie band in the last 25 years congealed into one unimaginative band. Maybe part of it was because I had to fuck around with a record player for 30 minutes to be able to play it. Maybe it was the fact that I can reference their “inspiration” (i.e. replication) for each song with its original artist. Literally, the only good thing about this album was the art and presentation— too bad the music didn’t match. –Allison Shephard
