Salad Days (2003)

EW's GRADE
B+

Details Release Date: May 06, 2003; Lead Performance: The King Of France

Finally, a New York City band that isn't consumed by image. The Kings' debut has all the nasal whine and new-wave '80s guitar noodling of fellow scenesters Interpol and Elefant, though their less-manicured sound (and look -- the singer has a beard!) owes more to the likes of '90s alt-rock nerds Neutral Milk Hotel and the Sea and Cake. Little pretense, much jangly finger-snapping rock.
