steverie I have to admit it, I'm not as cool as I used to think I was. The only reason I know about Treepeople is because of Doug Martsch's more popular band Built to Spill. Allow me to relinquish my hipster card, I am clearly no longer worthy of keeping it. On a serious note though, this debut full-length shows great promise for what was to come later in Mr. Martsch's career. The songs are concise and brimming with youthful energy; they were clearly channelling some of the most significant experimental hardcore acts of the 1980's (Husker Du, Sonic Youth, and especially Dinosaur Jr.) and fusing elements from those acts with their talent for writing intricate yet catchy songs. When all is said and done I think the songwriting is what impresses me the most about this album. They were so young, but they proved that they were a force to be reckoned with.
