I Need Your Love,The Coming Of Spring,House Of Jealous Lovers,Echoes,Sister Saviour
#1 album of the year for pfork back in 2003 when they still mainly liked 'indie rock', this band was the hot shit for a minute no doubt. Luke Jenner doesn't have my favorite voice ever, but it fits well enough.

'House of Jealous Lovers' is def one of the better dance punk tunes from this era. The thing you really need to understand about dance punk was that the stuffy ass early 2000's indie kids had no choice but to get down to this type of shit.
Club culture beats and post punk echoes were always great partners and always provided us with astonishing moments.
Here's the latest one!
This album plays with my emotions and makes me want to experience an acid trip while on a brutal rampage.
Really helped kick off the dance-punk revival. The amount of used copies of this you can pick up for 99 cents because people didn't get on board the Pitchfork hype train is astonishing. Well worth the investment if you find it. I would be remiss if I didn't mention how great of a track House of Jealous Lovers is.
