Tom Daily - Happily Deceiving Culture
Thick Records

You may know Tom Daily (aka Tom Counihan) as the former guitarist
from The Smoking Popes, or singer-songwriter of Not Rebecca. His debut
album overall has a good sound to it. The songs have the old Chicago
indie-pop spirit but musically are just a little rocky. While at some
points the music veers a little from pleasant, the emotionally charged
lyrics try to make up for it. The album moves slowly, but only sometimes
too slow. About half the songs are good, which makes the album worth
buying, but the other half just don't do enough for my musical needs.
