The Gasoline Age

Label: Merge / Touch and Go Released: 9/9/1999


I've been listening to this album for about a week and at first I wasn't sure about it. The songs seemed too mellow, the vocals flat and the overall sound was too clean for my taste. With further listens though, the Gasoline Age grew on me. It's got a nice Sunday morning kind of feel to it. The songs are well crafted and there is an interesting use of sound. There is no big production here. The album was recorded on an 8-track and sounds like a well-recorded demo tape. It comes across as understated, intimate and introspective even when the songs are about a car. I get a Rolling Stones, Let it Bleed era vibe and it makes me feel like going to New York City, as all good albums should. In short, I like it.
