Ringside, Round One

This morning, XPN played a catchy little ditty called "Tired of Being Sorry" that reminded me of The Eels. Ah, no, it's Ringside.

One of the members of Ringside is actor Balthazar Getty. I know what you're thinking. This is no 30 Odd Foot Grunts (Russell Crowe's ill-fated attempt at, ahem, "rock"). Eminently listenable, Ringside goes down easy. Some beats here, interesting vocals there, delicate in parts and approachable. They probably take themselves a little too seriously, but when you're making the kind of music that the kids eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner these days it's hard to blame them.

Worth at least one listen. I don't see any exceptional staying power but they'll entertain you for an afternoon.

Listen to Ringside
