Ill Lit

I was never into country growing up. Maybe it was rebelling against my Texas upbringing or maybe I just can't get into those twangy guitars and shaky voices. In the last year though, I discovered Wilco (about 5 years late), and then I started to listen to Neko Case, and Jenny Lewis began leaning towards alt-country also. Basically this is the perfect time for me to get this Ill Lit record, which sounds like all the best of Americana and alt-country put together with a little electronica to back it up. "The Bridge in Tracy" is one of the grandest songs I've heard all year.

Sort of reminds me of The Format.

Funny that i totally and completely disagree with Adam.

yeah, they're alright, huh? i ended up posting on them myself, even though sometimes i cringe at the steel twangs and such.

in regards to the Silversun Pickups track (pardon, haven't checked your blog in a bit) - isn't it effing awesome? i'm really into them, and it's because of that very song.
