At first I wasn't enormously enthralled with the new eponymous album (aka the "Gun Album") by the Minus 5 (mainly Scott McCaughey/Peter Buck). The style is just extremely familiar from McCaughey's earlier work and from its roots in late 60s influences. Bur after a few listens I have come to like it. Gap between the relatively cheery sound and the mordant (to put it mildly) lyrics is especially enjoyable.
