2008 Unsung - The Weeks

The Weeks' debut, Comeback Cadillac, is a schizophrenic affair that open with a borderline hardcore screamo blast of fury ("Comeback Cadillac"), and then alternates bewtween the greasy, southern fried scuzz rock of Kings of Leon (the young love bluster of "Buttons") and wistful alt-country ballads (the old love luster of the wondeful "Sailor Song"). The best news is that this Jackson, MS band's average age is under 20, so better things are sure to come. And just to show you there is hope for today's whippersnappers - this disc was my 17 year old nephew's # 1 album for 2008... otherwise I would have never heard it.
