Talk about the good old days all you want, but the Triangle music scene has never been better than it is now. For proof, listen no further than the latest and greatest in new local releases, "Community/Exploitation" (Trekky Records), the debut album from Chapel Hill's Embarrassing Fruits. It's fully realized guitar-pop with revved-up hooks recalling everyone from Pavement to Husker Du, with a trace of R.E.M.-vintage jingle-jangle thrown in. But don't sweat the reference points, because Embarrassing Fruits put the pieces together with plenty of originality on a nine-song set that is start-to-finish great.
-David Menconi, The News & Observer

A raucous soup of melody, squall and groove, poems swirling in dishwater, wives swapped after another lucky jerk complains his way off the altar. How can two people make this much noise? Machines. Guitar, bass, sequencers, hands, throats. Machines. One wing beats rust, the other glisten. A Jew, a Catholic; a boy, a girl. Isn?t tension what our attention?s after? Do you like to dance, even a little, and sweat, even a lot? We?re all lost in the woods, thank God. Jews and Catholics can fly deeper in.
