Split the Country, Split the Seats (Triple Crown)
by Scott Hefflon
Third solo of a guy from some band. While I like politics in my music like I like olives in my birthday cake, Kevin isn’t an idiot, or at least he’s not a screaming one who only knows three chords, so he plays ’em loud. Heartfelt solo acoustic stuff by guys in hardcore bands is played out, and while this ain’t no Ben Folds, the guy can write both nice snappy tunes and delicate ticklings. Brand New’s Jessie Lacey guests.
