There are way too many bands named Alaska even just indie/punk related. Case in point: I thought this was the metallic hardcore band from the UK that sounds like Rise and Fall. Then I wondered what they were up to and visited http://www.facebook.com/alaskauk , only to stumble upon a vaguely Red House Painters-ish band.

YO BANDS: COME UP WITH MORE ORIGINAL NAMES. IT'S 2012. USE THE INTERNET TO AVOID THAT SHIT.

Oranges could be really good if the production didn't blow dicks. Unique and catchy post-hardcore.

yeah. they sound really good except for the sub-par production value. it sounds like the left and right guitars are out of phase quite a bit. maybe try listening with earbuds or headphones, and it sounds a lot better. the recordings themselves are really good. they just need a better engineer. tweat those eq's and compressors a little better, and this could be a solid album for them.
