Label: Two Sheds
As longtime purveyors of defiantly unfashionable bar-band rock, Atlanta's Young Antiques don't really do anything that hasn't already been done better by others, but their fourth album remains a minor triumph of ram-shackle hooks and underdog charms. "Gotta Get Over You" is a breathless wallop of propulsive power pop that's here and gone in just over 90 thrilling seconds; the alternately bright and brooding "Daydream Fields" might've been an alt-rock radio staple in 1996, and "Biography" is the best fake Springsteen this side of the Hold Steady. The lesser moments feel a bit generic, but they're infrequent enough not to spoil the fun.
