Grnd Ntl Brnds
The Great Dumbening (Vaccination Records)

By: Alex Steininger

Poppy, lo-fi indie rock with its own identity. Grnd Ntl Brnds take a loose, jangly sound, pump it up with fuzzy rock, slow it down to make it a bit more engulfing, and then take you along for a bouncy, acid reminiscent journey. One that will have you sinking in the beauty of the female's vocals and shaken awake by the abrasive male vocalist. This is contradicting rock that gives you two different feelings, while always ensuring you feel the timid, stumbling power that runs through the songs. I'll give it a B.
