Album review: 'Ennui'


Animal Sounds



You could label Animal Sounds' style as "indie rock," but it's a bit of a misnomer that sells the maturity of the music short. "Ennui" is a fun, but understated record, with the local five-piece band (featuring guitarist Shawn Brogan of Jon Lewis Band) riding the brake and not getting nuts on the straightaways. It's an eight-cut joyride that really takes off after some buildup at track four, "Kid Danke Schon."
