Overlooked Album of the Year? Yes, Indeed.

Hastings Sunrise is easily my most overlooked album of '09. Vancouver's Apollo Ghosts debut is an often humorous and unabashedly sloppy good time. Fast and raw guitars, slow tremolo-infused strums, loose riffing vocals, male/female harmonies and whip-smart lyrics—it's a party where everyone's invited and is having a good time. Fans of the Modern Lovers, Saturday Looks Good To Me, and the Violent Femmes, please take note.
