Abner Trio – “You’re Gorgeous, Believe It” (play)
Sometimes a bad review from the right person is just what a band needs to help describe their sound in a positive way. Abner Trio boasts proudly on their myspace page that Razorcake HATES us!, and well they should. Ben Snakepit hates them for the very reasons I like them! “‘Thoughtful’ guitars, ‘intelligent’ and clearly enunciated vocals; AAARGH!” says poor Ben. Sounds to me like essence o’ XTC, with nods to Gentle Giant, King Crimson and Sonic Youth. Their label, Joyful Noise Recordings, explains that their new album The Giant Crushes You is available on Vinyl, Cassette, and Digital, but no CDs. How refreshing! A weird and wonderful record from a weird and wonderful band from Indianapolis.
