The Evens, 'Get Evens' (Dischord)

7
Get Evens
Critical Mass
Label: Dischord

by Trevor Kelley

Now two records in, this lo-fi duo -- led by former Fugazi and Minor Threat screamer Ian MacKaye -- continue to make charming albums while simply shrugging at their own limitations. Throughout, MacKaye fails to hit the high notes while harmonizing with drummer Amy Farina, but his shaky tenor lends the songs a necessary degree of tension, especially on "Everybody Knows," a strummy romp in which the president is encouraged to let the door hit his ass on the way out.
