Pinebocks -- Lena

Pinebocks reached out to me in June, and I fell in love with "Lena" right away. "This is it," I thought. "Absolutely the songs of the summer." But my "to review" list was so backed up that it didn't take me until now to alert you of its existence. That's okay -- you still have a few weeks left of summer to crank this, and it only seems fitting for a band that bills itself as "the worst band in Chicago but the best band in the world."

Pinebocks' carefully curated pop rock is a helluva lot of fun. Cory Clifford's ability to squeeze so much detailed imagery into two little ditties is nothing less than heroic. I'm looking forward to a full-length that's maybe NOT on a cassette.

You can't buy these songs from Bandcamp, but you can purchase the cassette (because that's what the cool kids listen to now) and a digital download from Limited Fanfare Records.
