Some things you're just born with. Born damn lucky to have, in fact. Vancouver's Weed have been advantageously endowed with the great gift of rock 'n' roll instinct and shares it in spades on its full-length debut. The production is perfectly muddied, the melodies are simple and inspired and the playing is downright ferocious. If you're looking for a sonic reference point, consider these: For the youngins---imagine if No Age had gotten better and better instead of worse and worse. For the geezers---it's as if Jawbox were actually as good as you're remembering them.
