Nik’s Music Almanac

Totally Irrelevant and Off-Topic


So I sort of knew about them back in the day, but I really didn’t start listening to them until Scott Pilgrim came out. Their lyrics are heartfelt, but not very deep. The music is catchy but not all that polished.

But they are just so much fun! They’ve got really nice harmonies, the lyrics are playful, and they are willing to experiment. Give their Best of album a good listen and cherry pick the rest. You won’t be disappointed.

Sounds like: That really cool band you loved () in college then sort of forgot about…


Well I know you’re having a hard time
Tomorrow will be tough and today will too
And I can see it in you’re eyes that you need my help
But what can I do?

Well I know you’re having a bad day
And I’ll try to make you smile anyway
I can see that my efforts do little to help you
But push you away

No matter what I do
You’ll do it too
No matter where I go
You’ll get there too

Next time I see you,
I’m going the other way
Next time I see you,
I’m going the other way
