Absolutely. They put out one of the best records of last year and it was pretty much universally ignored by all critics/media outlets/everyone else too.

I first heard of this band on Rocksmith. Didn't play their song much until it came up as a weekly challenge on the forums. The song is mildly catchy but pretty fun to play... the riffs were very "juicy" (to quote Jack Black). The song didn't really register with me so I never really followed up on them...

I DVR Conan so, when I saw they were the musical guest on last nights episode I decided I'd check it out.

Damn.

They didn't put on the best "show" but that song was tight. Musically engaging and very well crafted song. I'm def going to be checking out Corsicana Lemonade.

Insanely underrated, for me one of the best rock bands of our time.

I think the challenge is that they were a 'buzz band' in 2009, got pretty big in London, and the blogs picked up on them then. As they developed (and got better and better in my opinion) they moved further away from the sound that press would cover. I actually respect pitchfork for not reviewing this one. After giving good reviews to 4 previous releases, to bash this and call it dad rock was just not needed.

Theyre in a weird spot where they are sort of having to re-establish their fanbase a little bit.

But I think little by little theyre finding their people, and I that they are goddamn amazing live can only help!
