Krispy Kareem – Fraternity Forefathers

“It’s just that you waited a long time”

In March I stumbled across Poussine by Krispy Kareem, an album that someone, somewhere should have shared with me earlier. The indie-pop-slackers from Philadelphia are a sounds-like-Pavement band recommendation with a difference. Not only do they have a serious knack for a chorus but on a bunch of the LP’s tracks, and on Fraternity Forefathers in particular, there is more than a hint of Math Rock that fans of Meet Me in St. Louis or first album Tubelord will seriously enjoy.
