The Classic Brown: Down with Fun
release: fall 2007
style: indie rock, indie pop
similar: Juliana Hatfield, Spinanes, Feist, Frente
[rating: ***] Me like the band name. Band name is good. Record title is a favorite too. Canadian Stacey Brown leads this band currently consisting of people from New Jersey band Up Up Down Down Left Right... Me wonder how that works, i will ask Brownie. People are going to compare Brown's voice to other current indie rock "darlings" like Rilo Kiley or Stars or Feist. That works, and so does a comparison to mid-90s indie rock band on major label. Following a mix of mature indie rock and inviting indie pop, me especially like the timid closing song "Americana." -Kenyon
