1st proper studio album from weirdo LA rockers. Though there was a release before this that compiled early singles and EPs, 'Nouns' saw the band give proper studio time to their avant wall of sound. Hailed by fans and critics as one of the best albums of 2008, the album is overdriven artful angst done in the most humble way imaginable. Throughout the album we are treated to foot stomping shout alongs, beautiful ambient pieces, raucous jangle pop, and much more. Fans of Animal Collective's early work, Jay Reatard, The Oh Sees, and Deerhunter would surely throw this in the mix without skipping a beat.
