The mid-00s might be more infamous for its abominable, vacuous indie bands, but for those of us who wouldn’t be seen dead in a pork pie hat, there wasn’t a great deal to enjoy in the mainstream.
There were, however, still a few bands capable of making their mark at the fringe.
This is The Decayist, a monthly podcast from This Decay. In each episode Chris Nee or Dave Musson nominates an album the other doesn’t know. We talk about it for a few minutes before passing a verdict.
In this episode, Dave introduces Chris to You & Me, the second album by Open Hand, before asking the three questions that matter:
What’s your three-word review?
What’s your rating out of ten?
And will you be adding You & Me to your record collection?
You & Me came out in 2005.
