TITLEDon't Tell Me Now
ARTISTHalo Benders
GENRECalvin Johnson
NOTESounds basically like Dub Narcotic with Buit to Spill as their backing band. Built to Spill is full orders-of-magnitude better, though this isn't necessarily bad. If you get annoyed by Calvin's penchant for repetitive loops, this will probably annoy you too. But each time I listen to this it gets a little bit better, so maybe I'm just approaching it from the wrong perspective...

"Phantom Power" is short and rockin'
"Mercury Blues" sounds like it could be a slow BTS song
"Volume Mode" is really funny
"Planned Obsolescence" has a nice BTSesque guitar line and chorus. Good song!
