The Minus 5 attracted my attention by their last album Down With Wilco. The music is kind of timeless pop, with a heavy Beatles influence, although I don’t know any Beatles album, which is as “Beatles-Sounding” as some of the albums carrying that label.
The Gun Album (it doesn’t really have a name), continues with sweet pop music, that is very pleasant to hear, with nice melodies and all real instruments. I am not sure if anyone listens to this anymore, but it is very refreshingly non-hip. Jeff Tweedy and Peter Buck are on top of the list of participating musicians. What more can you ask for? Very enjoyable, ideal for a long run or car drive.
