We Used To Vacation & Hang Me Up To Dry – Cold War Kids

Jesus freaks. Bible thumpers. Hell maybe they are. I mean, they did go to Biola, and most people I know who went to Biola were a little too God-happy for my tastes. And “We Used to Vacation” is a bit of an ode to tee-totaling. But I like to drink like nobody’s business and I still think it’s a pretty good song. They seem pretty normal in interviews. And quite frankly, I probably wouldn’t even have thought about it if not for Marc Hogan, and he’s kind of a dick.

A little Spoony, though the Nathan Willet doesn’t exactly sound like Britt Daniel. Personally, I prefer the second tune to the first, even it it is about laundry.

By the way, I find it strange that there’s a “120 Minutes” tag on the screen in the first video. The album came out in 2006. Hasn’t 120 minutes been dead for like three years?

[P. Punko adds- these guys were get the half-assed push on the second tune for about 5 minutes on the radio here. He sounds like he’s on the edge of completely losing it, which is kind of a balancing act]
