Random Record Review – Insouciant, “Dresser”

– Insouciant Dresser Not Rock (2010) – I know Insouciant basically means “jaunty” or “carefree” to an extent, but honestly, this band is anything but.  Despite the simplicity of the sound, there’s a surprising level of subtle, below-the-initial-listen intricacy here … Continue reading
