The Young Fresh Fellows always feel like they should have been a bigger deal than they were. They absolutely perfected the jangle pop/college rock sound. They nailed it so hard that They Might Be Giants referenced them in a song, which is something very few people can say (it puts right up there with James K. Polk and James Ensor, so yeah).
Electric Bird Digest finds The Young Fresh Fellows hitting all their marks. They make everything sound completely effortless, as if pure pop just happens. Scott McCaughey is clearly one of the best musicians of his generation, and the songs he wrote for this album are evidence. If you've been looking for a new band to love, here ya go.
