According to their Bandcamp profile, "The Only Things are a rock and roll band from Lowell, MA." That sums up their new album, Don't Get It. The album is comprised of eight songs that blend anthemic arena ready classic rock, the noise and distortion of indie rock, and garage punk. It's a loud and raucous collection of songs that is just pure fun. It's a combination of artists like Bruce Springsteen, Sebadoh, and Frank Turner. A song like "Heartbreaker" is a perfect example of this. It's a loud and fast mostly straightforward rocker, but as it goes on it gets weirder with off tuned guitar solos and seems to be crumbling into a disaster of discordance. But then it rights itself and just rocks out the rest of the way. Don't Get It is the perfect rock album for those of us that love the unique sounds of indie rock but have a soft spot for anthemic arena rock.
You can listen to "Heartbreaker" below. Don't Get It is available for the "name your price" option on Bandcamp. If you do choose free, be sure to at least give The Only Things a follow on Facebook.
