The Vines – Highly Evolved

10 08 2010

Listened: Tuesday July 27

The Vines are one of those 90s bands of the moment that were hot for only one album and then disappeared. I had barely listened to Highly Evolved until now.

It sounds a lot different from what I was expecting. I thought it was all shouty pop. But a lot of it is really dreamy indie music, almost like the Shins(!) in parts (Autumn Shade). Then there are also the shouty parts (In The Jungle), so I wasn’t totally mistaken. Even the pretty parts aren’t that memorable after you’re done listening, though. Sadly, I don’t have a lot of desire to listen to this in the future.
