The Peabodys - Awkward age.
Released in late 2006 and recorded at Studio 13 in Portland, OR by the great Pat Kearns (producer of the classic Exploding Hearts album, "Guitar Romantic"), this is the first recording by the west coast incarnation of The Peabodys. This record is basically the antithesis of the band's 2001 layered and subdued pop album, "All Out Of You". "Awkward Age" is instead a stripped-down, raw & rocking punk rock record done live in studio. Four songs, including the chagrined indictment of the emo scene "Your Despair Cannot Be Fathomed", the bouncy Buzzcocks-influenced "A Note From The Underground", and the typical Peabody "smile through the tears" laments on misspent youth such as "Tortoise & Hare" and "Today Is The Only Day". If you like "My Brain Hurts" era Screeching Weasel and early Green Day, this is definitely a record for you. C&P.
