Minus the Bear – Highly Refined Pirates

Listened: Tuesday July 27

I love Minus the Bear! Woody’s brother Glen introduced them to me. Their music is really catchy, pretty, and modern-sounding. But I have one beef with them – their album titles, on this their debut album, are freaking stooooopid. And, on top of that, have nothing to do with the content of the song. I give you:

“Thanks For The Killer Game Of Crisco Twister”

“Hey, Wanna Throw Up?”

“Booyah Achieved”

What the hell is that? Why must you sabotage yourselves this way?? No one wants to randomly buy an album with incredibly dumb names like that. Take yourselves more seriously!! Just a little?

Apparently they took that advice, because later albums have less dumb song titles. Thank god.
