Day 328: We Were Promised Jetpacks – In the Pit of the Stomach

22 Jan

Sore Thumb

All right, we’ve got to be kind of fast with this tonight.  I have about 100 more psychology vocab words to define before the night is up, plus I somehow need to get around 8 hours of sleep before my final in that class tomorrow.

Fortunately, I did myself a favor with tonight’s album choice.  Not only are We Were Promised Jetpacks a standard indie rock band, they’re a standard indie rock band that I already know pretty well.  Another plus, which I didn’t even consider when picking the record, is that We Were Promised Jetpacks is a fairly long band name.  That means that every time I type out “We Were Promised Jetpacks,” I cover a much greater chunk of my self-inflicted 250-word requirement than usual.

See, we’ve already reached the halfway point of this We Were Promised Jetpacks post!  I’ve really got this whole writing thing figured out, I’d say.

If you like your indie rock with a little foreign twist, then look no further then We Were Promised Jetpack’s In the Pit of the Stomach (long album name too. Bonus).  These Scottish dudes can rock, but you (I) already knew that—2009’s These Four Walls is all kinds of awesome.  They picked up right where they left off with this record, as Stomach Pits sounds like it was recorded in the same session as their debut.

I don’t care, though, because it’s still a really cool sound.  Think of a Frightened Rabbit that rocks harder, and you’ve got these guys.   Whiney Scottish brogue and all.

And that, folks, is how you knock out 270 words in less than 10 minutes.

    Good job Mr. Swole. If you gave up the contractions, you would have been at 250 in about seven minutes. Study hard.

      Personally, I was a little concerned by the lack of psychological terminology in the post itself. though the review seemed to present some opportunities in that regard Quick: What is “revivescence”?
