The fifth album by highly underrated, actually in this case criminally underrated band, Santa Cruz's own The Call. It's like a non-pretentious U2, or a R.E.M. with balls.
All The Call 2 Albums
This album is very interesting in that it fits right in with the 1984 time period it's from, but it does not sound like anyone else's stuff save for by a very abstract "this-sort-of-idea" sort of way.
