After you hear the slick bubble punk of "If I Could Fix You (You Know That I would), you won't be surprised to hear that Tom Lord-Alge (Weezer, Blink-182) engineered the EP.
"Hearts On Overdrive" seems precisely designed to garner commercial alternative rock radio airplay.
It's not a total bust. There's a cute youthful exuberance to "Maybe I'm a Chump". The big winner is the solid Against Me!-style power popper "Sixty-Six".
I'm sure Thought Beneath Film have an audience, it's just not me.
