Album Review
Reviewed 2003-08-05
From the Bay Area (I think), Film School write sad indie pop songs with spacey leanings on this very decent EP. While instrumentation is mostly guitar driven, keyboards and samples thicken the mix nicely, and the sad indie boy voice is executed well. Although the songs tend to get a little repetitive, the repetition contributes to the spacey-ness and melancholic groove. Think also of Pavement, Bedhead. All songs are good, though #1 is by far the most adventurous.

1. distant echoey drums provide a steady beat under nice twangy guitar drone, gentle keyboards, sweet vocals come in late
2. sweet plucky guitar driven song with steady groove and tired sad indie boy voice. late pavement sounding.
3. mellow pop song with muted voice, string arrangement; builds bigger and spacier towards the end
4. slow ¾ of quiet piano chords with voice. spacey samples fade in & out, drums come in, and song builds to hard, sort of MBV closing.
