Short Round – Language Review

Short Rounds’ Language was another album that I found when looking for Asian bands in the United States. Fronted by a member of The Chinkees, the sound of the album is much more straight forward indie/rock, with more focus on rock.

Language is a classic album because it is simplistic in presentation only relying on the instruments of the band and the vocals to present the songs.

Each song is pretty short with the shortest at 1:53 and the longest at 3:58, but the album flies by with the addictive hooks and unique sound. While other bands were looking to create grand audio landscapes, Short Round just made a damn good album.
