Brooklyn's Leland Sundries is waving an Americana flag in an indie war. Lyrically, it's a steely folk stance where front man Nick Loss-Eaton keeps the quirk and the off-kilter to a minimum. The arrangements are garage-y yet sufficiently loose, and so is the application, which in turn gives the band miles and miles of credibility and fans a lot to grab on to. A bar band with a heart. Whadaya know? Hip in a good way.
