Nope. It's the same band. These guys used to be called The Muslims, but changed their name for obvious reasons. Must have been a typo on the poster.

These songs are definitely catchy..

But having experience with the British Indie scene I feel like they're a bit too typical.. Remind me of a less produced version of The Kooks or The Wombats.

With that said, however, this is a solid release.

if this were to go down as the Let It Be of the Jersey Shore generation, my first inclination is to say I'd be more than fine with that.

wow, will check this out

Hmm. Not bad. Reminded me of the Stooges at a point or two. I agree, they do pull of the Swagger. Not groundbreaking, but good enough.
