The second I read the phrase "it's like The Jayhawks meets Dinosaur.Jr" while reading this
review on Pop Matters, I knew this was a band I would love. So I grabbed the self titled second disc from Oslo band I Was A King this morning, and I was not disappointed.
It's like a love letter to all of the stuff that I rocked out to through college and those awkward first few years post college years...and I LOVE IT. Is it odd to be nostalgic for a period that really wasn't that long ago?
Probably, but I am OK with that. Especially if nostalgia sounds this good...enjoy the song, and check out the Pop Matters review I linked to...you can sample the entire record there.
