Man...someone want to tell me why I like this? I'm at a loss, except to say that Moscow's JINX are just really good at doing the thing that they do. Shades of SUNNY DAY REAL ESTATE (full disclosure: the first comparison I made was FOO FIGHTERS, but the vocals were too pretty), but really this is just commercial sounding indie/alt. "She's A Stargazer" could be a radio hit...and maybe that's the thing: "She's A Stargazer" should be a radio hit, but instead the radio is full of schlock. And this schlock is actually kinda good schlock, so maybe I'm drawn to JINX because this is what shitty music should be: it should be pretty good. It usually isn't, but it doesn't seem too much to ask.
