Two reviews in Flagpole this week: British Sea Power, who I am still unimpressed by, and a local Athens band called Jet By Day who, regrettably, seem to be getting national attention. I try and be fair about them, because I recognize that they're not my thing, but it's really, really hard, and I mostly fail. But, failure's fine, especially when it comes to reviewing indie-screamo. Uh, I mean, "heavy-indie-southern-rock."

Also got the following note:

Will someone tell your reviewer
that Trail of Dead and British Sea Power
To which I can only say a) I'm pretty sure I agreed with you in re: Trail of Dead's rockingness, and b) British Sea Power rock? Really? Did I get the wrong album?
