Koufax - Trouble Will Find You

I'm not sure why Koufax aren't more popular than they are, but it may have something to do with the fact that they were always on the wrong record label. Their first two albums were released through Vagrant and yet their sound is anything but emo or hardcore. (Their album Social Life is probably the only Vagrant release ever to get a good review on Pitchfork.) Fans of Spoon or Elvis Costello should enjoy their piano-oriented rock vibe. Their latest release Hard Times Are In Fashion is on Doghouse Records, and both Robert and Ryan Pope formerly of the Get Up Kids are now playing in the band. At first I was a little disappointed, but I'm happy to say that this record is steadily growing on me. Check out these songs and see what you think.
