The Evens -- 'On The Face of It' and 'Mt. Pleasant Isn't'
Man am I ever pissed I didn't listen to The Evens sooner! Their music sees Ian MacKaye complete the gesture towards minimal, intimate protest music that he started on Fugazi's last album. I know less about Amy Farina's musical history, but I do know that her vocals and drumming increase the oddness and melodic simplicity of these pieces exponentially. Plus, as these live clip shows, MacKaye still rocks really fucking hard even when he's trying to play softly!
