INFO: Most of us probably know of Flint, Michigan from the Michael Moore documentary Roger & Me, and this conflicted town has produced the mysterious electronic-tinged acoustic pop of In Civilian Clothing. Infusing elements of the dour Brit-pop of Tindersticks, the drum-machine-driven future pop of Morr Music, and the songwriting chops of Ben Gibbard and Conor Oberst, In Civilian Clothing soundtrack driving through secluded suburbs during rainy days, letting the headlights and radio provide much of the unique atmosphere. Its icy-synth rock that doesn't feel like new-wave and post-emo that avoids being overblown. If you want your records to stir up your emotions with precise subtlety each time you throw it on, In Civilian Clothing have your song cycle all set up and ready to indulge. All tracks clean.
