Arguably, sure. But what hasn't? There is nothing new, so who cares? I personally think trying hard to be "artistic" and "different" while basically playing the same boring thing as everybody else is more stale than trying to be a fun, enjoyable band. I'll take stupid and fun rock'n'roll over any music that takes itself too seriously and worries about how others perceive it any time.

I have heard Nate Palan many many times and I think he is a first rate performer. But he's not that loud and this image of a loud rock band is inconsistent with what my actual experience of the band was.
Nate may not be that loud, but stand in front of my amp sometime. Heh. I am glad you enjoyed us though, that is what it's all about.
All in all, I'm excited that the debut project in my studio
turned out pretty dang rad. Especially considering how little prep/play time we get because of all our busy schedules.
