Highlight Lyric: “Watched a sidewalk butcher/ His instinctive understanding/ made the carcass snap and clarify /beneath his nimble hands that held the knife so long, so many times/ the handles’ changed to ships just like his fingers and his palms/And I, I am a passenger tonight/ I watch the world/ From inside” from Chinatown Bus

Highlight Review: “epitomize indie pop at its shiniest. Upbeat songs with jangling guitars and fervent hooks shape them to be a fitting summer soundtrack. ” – read more at Bwog
