's debut album is equal parts power pop and post-grunge -- there's plenty of crunch and jangle on all 12 songs. You can hear the band evolving here -- their sound is perfected on their Closed
EP and their next (and last) album, So Wound
. Splinters of that album can be heard on the janglier tracks here, like "Again," "Nebulous," "Mend," and "Promise." Jennifer Pierce
has a soft, innocent voice that blends well with Laura Stein
's raspy, somewhat subdued vocals, and the band's underproduced sound adds to the charm.
