DAN WEBB AND THE SPIDERS - "Oh Sure" LP
I'd heard somebody portray this band as indie rock, which I'm not big on, but this is much cooler than that depiction so i'll try to set the record straight. Yes, there is a disposition toward low-fi, distorted rock that brings to mind a band like DINOSAUR JR, but the tunes are also upbeat and and catchy in a way JAY REATARD (R.I.P.) was or the YOUNG PIONEERS or THERMALS were. The zone that exists between melodic punk and moody, heartfelt rock 'n' roll is a good place to be, and that's where DAN WEBB AND THE SPIDERS reside. This album is quickly becoming one of my favorites for the month, and if you dig the style of the bands aforementioned, you should do yourself a favor and seek this out for yourself. Fantastic.
