When not busy fronting Motion City Soundtrack, Justin Pierre likes to call himself Richard Kimble while writing fuzzed out indiepop songs for Farewell Continental, a side-project he started with members of other Minneapolis-based bands such as Small Towns Burn A Little Slower and Trace The Skyline.

On “EP #2” these guys sound like a 90s indierock band getting in a massive fight with a pop-loving outfit in some dingy garage. Sounds weird? No, it doesn’t. It’s a treat to listen to and comes with big hooks and dual male/female vocals that work well together. Whether you’re listening to the ridiculously catchy “Son Of A Bitch / Son Of A Whore” or the Crosby, Stills, Nash & Young cover of “Our House”, Farewell Continental does a pretty banging job of making this EP worth a couple of spins.
