thieving irons - this midnight hum

i am listening to thieving irons' album for a while now, but it had to grow on me first before i decided to write about it. thieving irons is nate martinez from brooklyn/ny and a rotating cast of musicians. his debut album is pretty hard to classify, which is obviously a good sign, since hard to classify albums don't bore me to death after a short while. i hear similarities to the national and at parts they remind me of frightened rabbit.... at least when they get way too dramatic. the albums is well produced and i like the basslines on most of the songs. listning to it with my headphones on is pure satisfaction. the first two songs i liked the best were "tow the line" and "wave's gonna break", but within the past weeks i learned to love the whole album. even though..... "wave's gonna break" is still the one song that stands out. heavily underrated band!!!
8.5/10 (fk)
