Expert Alterations: You Can't Always Be Liked

1. Product Details

Vinyl LP pressing includes digital download. On their stellar debut album Expert Alterations proves themselves both keen observers of their fellow man and pop craftsman of the highest order. Can't Always Be Liked is a triumph for Baltimore's premier indie pop trio. After capturing the attention of the indie faithful with their self-titled 5 song EP, Expert Alterations is poised to become the new standard-bearers of whip-smart pop-rock. Expert Alterations consult the detailed map of their forefathers - groups like The Feelies, Monochrome Set and The Wedding Present - and use it to chart a course to an alternate world utopia where sonic hooks are paramount and wry lyrics celebrated. For fans of The Fall, Television Personalities, The Pastels, The Clean, Close Lobsters, Guided by Voices and The Vaselines.
