WHY YOU’LL LOVE THEM: If you were anything like the majority of high schoolers five years ago, you own a copy of the Vans Warped Tour 2005 compilation. Squid The Whale play humanitarian and save you the trouble of trying to unearth that disc. The prog rock quintent take the positives of Forgive Durden and The Audition and continue the experiment, churning out witty lyrics and grinding guitars that propel each member’s sound.
SOUNDS LIKE: Gatsby’s American Dream’s charming younger brother.
