If I told you that I knew about this album before the infamous scene in High Fidelity, I would be lying. That scene is fantastic. It makes you feel like you'll never fit in at Championship Vinyl (a fictional record store) if you don't know and love The Beta Band. Now I know of them, but love is too strong a word. I don't quite love them, but I find them perfectly pleasant. On rainy summer afternoons I really like them.
