CD of the Day, 6/5/07: The Zebras-Worry a Lot
If you like the Brit-pop jangle of bands like Teenage Fanclub, The Go-Betweens, The Primary 5 and others, you're going to love Worry a Lot from Brisbane's The Zebras. This largely overlooked 2006 release would definitely have wormed its way onto my Top 100 list had I heard it then, but as they say, better late than never.
There's a fairly uniform consistency throughout this disc, making highlights tough to pick out, but if pressed I'd go with leadoff track "You Look Ready", the title track, and "Patient to the End", which sports a truly lovely melody. The disc is only available as an import outside Australia, but it's worth seeking out.
