Awkward Breeds by The Sidekicks, released 21 February 2012 1. DMT 2. Grace 3. Peacock 4. Incandescent Days 5. 1940's Fighter Jet 6. Diamond Eyes 7. The Whale and Jonah 8. The 9th Piece 9. Looker 10. Baby, Baby 11. Daisy In 2009, the genre's biggest webzine awarded Album of the Year to The Sidekicks. The band has since migrated from Cleveland to Columbus and made an even bigger migration with their ever-maturing sound on Awkward Breeds. Some will hear influences like Superchunk, Rilo Kiley, and Weezer on this latest album, but The Sidekicks have. Awkward Breeds refers to the condition I perceive myself, my friends, and a lot of people I have met to be in. This condition comes from growing up in an America where individuality is emphasized. Everything needs to be for a goal, an achievement, a purpose. Trying to achieve contentment within this mold, however, seems to be unattainable because the general condition for us is to continue to want more and more, constantly in search of that next individual payoff. And it leaves you feeling empty, or like things just arent right. A person cant perfectly fit into this mold. My friends I cant. The Sidekicks are an American indie rock band from Cleveland, Ohio. The Sidekicks released their first full-length album, So long, Soggy Dog in 2007. The following year, they released a 7 titled Sam. In 2009, The Sidekicks released their second full-length album titled Weight of Air. The Sidekicks released a split in 2011 with the band Tigers Jaw. In 2012, The Sidekicks released their third full-length album titled Awkward Breeds, as well as an EP titled Grace. The Sidekicks signed to Epitaph Records. 11 tracks 40:33. The Sidekicks.

First off, I rated this album 4 stars because I am an extremely biased fan- and I don't believe that one's favorite band should always deserve a perfect rating. But it's definitely a 5 star. I found this band relatively late in the game, soon after they won Best Album of 2009 for 'Weight of Air'. I immediately felt connected to their music and extremely drawn to their catchy hooks and the vocals of their lead singer. Album 2012 11 Songs. Alternative Sidekicks will release their third full-length Awkward Breeds on February 21 via Red Scare once out, it'll follow up 2009's Weight Of Air. Prior to the release of the full-length, the group will issue a two-song single titled Grace on January 17. They'll also be touring with Cheap Girls later this year.
