The Everymen: Seconds as an English Language
The Everymen is a band whose sound is an interesting marriage of 80s underground spirit and 90s guitar fuzz revival, with a saxophone in the mix for good measure. Their set, a fun mix of party punk à la Titus Andronicus, exhibits the benefits and limitations of their simplistic style. All of this is heard in their live release, Seconds as an English Language, which opens with an introduction about Hurricane Irene to pull at the heartstrings of their local audience. Any focus lacking in the vocal performance is more than made up for with passion and energy from the band as a whole. A raw recording, to be sure, The Everymen offers here a small taste of a live performance not to be missed by any Jersey kid with a pair of dancing shoes.
