Lonely Kings Crowning Glory

Now that post-punk is growing in popularity, it seems that all the labels want in. Fearless’s Lonely Kings fit the mould carved by Gainesville’s post-punk boom nearly perfectly: two guys who can’t sing all that well, but somehow carry a tune, fast, but not too fast drums and guitars, beards, it’s all there. But while the songs are earnest enough, and you sense that there is some real energy behind all that yelling, it’s missing that catchiness. It came across bland, honest, but bland. (Fearless)
