The Convenience of Indecision

Like infidelity and Hostess Cupcakes, the sonds found on Indecsion will be around eternally. Hailing from the indie hot spot of Chapel Hill, NC, Sorry About Dresden reincarnates the clamor for which the region is best known (old-school Superchunk, Archers of Loaf)--slope-sloundered guitars with vocals bent and slurred by alcohol and heartbreak (the two real mainstays of existence, screw death and taxes). These songs repeatedly bum your cigarettes, proceed to make a scene (probably by putting a butt out in some frat boy's Bud) and end up getting you ousted from whatever fine establishment you've chosen to wallow in your troubles. Bitter, raucous and beyond all restraint, Sorry About Dresden may be down, but never defeated. At least not as long as there's booze and you've got smokes.
