i've been following this religiously. all of my favorite bands are the ones who tweeted this (thrice, iata, kevin devine, brand new, etc) i felt especially involved because i got the letters, and i was a marketing major in college, so i really appreciate the ad campaign.
after the first song, piano wire, i was completely floored.
after listening to baby shakes, i hated it. but i really want to like this band
so i kept listening to it, and it grew on me a bit. i feel totally ridiculous listening to it, but eh i've been on a musical hiatus kind of, where i can't find anything new especially since most bands i love have broken up (eotc, thrice, treos, atal etc..) so i'm giving it a chance. im kind of digging it now, i feel like this song is something you have to really have to give a third chance to. once you get over the ridiculousness/retardedness of it, you can really start to appreciate it.
listening to the stream now since i haven't had a chance yet, kinda digging the second track too
