Editorial Reviews

2012 album from the Ohio punkers. In 2009, Punknews.org (the genre's biggest webzine) awarded Album Of The Year to The Sidekicks. The band has since migrated from Cleveland to Columbus and made an even bigger migration with their ever-maturing sound on Awkward Breeds. Some will hear influences like Superchunk, Rilo Kiley, and Weezer on this latest album, but The Sidekicks have managed to retain and further develop a signature sound that is all their own.

First off, I rated this album 4 stars because I am an extremely biased fan-- and I don't believe that one's favorite band should always deserve a perfect rating. But it's definitely a 5 star.

I found this band relatively late in the game, soon after they won Punknews.org Best Album of 2009 for 'Weight of Air'. I immediately felt connected to their music and extremely drawn to their catchy hooks and the vocals of their lead singer.

I pre-ordered this album back in January but never received my digital download code from Really Records, so I bought a download from Amazon. I had already heard a few songs off the album before I bought it- heard DMT at a live show last year- and heard Grace and The 9th Piece off their EP they released in January. The Grace EP was very solid and was a great teaser for their full length to come.

Awkward Breeds has a great variety of songs, some that remind me of off-beat tunes from decades past. I can truly say that every song is solid on the album. It flows perfectly well and is sure to have you singing along in no time. This album is not like their previous two full-lengths... more of an obscure mixture of tunes with a little deeper meaning. Watch the Pink Couch Session of '1940's Fighter Jet' on Youtube to get an idea of the of the record.

If you're a fan of The Menzingers, Joyce Manor, Banner Pilot, Alkaline Trio, or any other melodic punk outfit, The Sidekicks are for you. They are currently touring with The Cheap Girls- go see them live for a great experience.

A very talented group, The Sidekicks rock and make great songs. The song '1940's Fighter Jet' is one of the best of the year and an all time favorite. 'Grace' is passionate and beautiful. Punks in Vegas indeed with hooks and heart. Lyrics are thoughtful and grab you. Their sound is raw and real.
Reminds of the time when bands made albums with fast and slow songs. Found them On NPR best of 2012, and I agree.

Great power punkpop. Infectious to say the least. Great to listen to while working or painting a room or driving. Check them out. :)

Terrible.

The Sidekicks' debut album "So Long Soggy Dog" had enough good songs to award some repeated listens.

The sophomore album, "Weight Of Air", was pretty bad. A good song here or there, but overall it just stunk.

This, "Awkward Breeds", is honestly the worst album I've heard this year. How people praise this is mind-boggling. Not a remotely-decent song on the album. It's all indie-pop hipster-rock.

Avoid.
