The Young Fresh Fellows - Because We Hate You
Anyway, The Young Fresh Fellows half of this set is as great as you'd expect. It's jangly and delicious. There are a few odd tracks like "My Drum Set" that serve to remind that The Young Fresh Fellows are as strange as they are brilliant. "For the Love of a Girl" is one of the best songs in their catalogue and it shows that jangle pop, a genre generally limited to the 1980's and early 1990's, is not entirely dead or outdated. This is a solid album, which is more than you'd expect from half of a two-fer.
