The Young Fresh Fellows – I Think This Is (Yep Roc/Outside Music)

YFF.jpg

The first record in eight years from Seattle band The Young Fresh Fellows finds the group as an amped up version of leader Scott McCaughey’s other group, The Minus 5. Producer Robyn Hitchcock elicits magnificent poppy performances from the group on ‘Lamp Industries’ and ‘Let The Good Times Crawl’ while things are a little punkier on ‘New Day I Hate’ and ‘Shake Your Magazines.’

I Think This Is  has a quirky nervous energy running through it that would quickly find a place in the hearts of fans of The Replacements.
