Tracklist: Shibuya Crossings - At Eight In A Spanish Bar

Shibuya Crossings are from London, which should be noted as their single-minded dedication to 90s US liberal town road trip stereo college rock makes Yuck seem like the Copper Family. The ever-present Pavement are there, but dig deeper and the influence of early Weezer, Sparklehorse and Superchunk is there in the summer backing harmonies and the Big Star chime of the guitars. And what could be more awkward teenage fumbly through the youth drama prism then a song about a failed date and the sensation of thinking you're being watched by everyone else in the bar?
