If Grown Ups was your college professor, More Songs would be Advanced Emo Mathematics with a refresher course in Punk Philosophy. Or maybe you'd call it the indie-phile's revisionist history, focusing on late greats such as Cap'n Jazz, Lifetime, Latterman or the short-lived and under-appreciated Street Smart Cyclist. You might simply consider More Songs an independent study: creative, offbeat and never staying within any clearly defined box.

Whatever school of rock you attend, there is no correct answer when it comes to Grown Ups' amazing new full-length. The debut
for both the band and the newly created U.S. division of British imprint, Big Scary Monsters, More Songs finds both
parties off to a rousing start.

Features ten incredibly fun, rough-and-tumble emo rock songs recorded by Matt Allison (Lawrence Arms, Alkaline Trio, Less Than Jake, Rise Against), More Songs picks up where Grown Ups' debut EP - the aptly titled Songs - left off. Tracks like "Weed Science" and "Pears" revel in somersaulting guitar lines, deft finger-picking, staccato rhythms and gruff vocals leading fist-shaking sing-a-longs. The band twists and turns, veering left when you're expecting right, yet the mood is light and airy and there's an elasticity present that keeps Grown Ups sonically adventurous ideas in check.
