Sometimes when you listen to a (song/band/album) you find it nearly impossible to convey to anybody else, in words, the feeling of excitement and renewed enthusiasm for music that it has brought to you.
Sometimes you sit up late at night writing and re-writing the same fanboy review dozens of ways. Waxing Lester Bangsingly about how the this music is the music for a generation in a way that no other band is currently doing it. Only to have it be your thirteen attempt at a review to be thrown away like a bad teenage poem.
The gravity and minimalist glee of Odd Pets’ “Heavy Petting” is a reason to still believe in the power of rock music (period).
