It‘s in there-the driving, dissonant and dark, D.C.-style melodies that defined the bands that French Toast‘s James Canty and Jerry Busher used to play in (Nation of Ulysses and Fugazi, respectively). But their pedigrees aren‘t the only thing that make this record good. Canty and Busher switch-hit on vocals, drums, keys, and bass and the result is a collection of tight tracks formed from the comfort and improvisation of their basement “cave” sessions. Holding this LP together are calculated song structures that shift between the frenetic (“Seen Me”) and the pensive (“Off Center”), displaying this duo‘s casual confidence.
