After thoroughly taking in one complete spin of So Long, Soggy Dog, my first thought was, "I bet this would be a good band to see live. Most of the songs come off with the intensity and gruffness reminiscent of bands like Rivethead, Banner Pilot and Hot Water Music, while others have a more downtrodden ambiance similar to that of Gaslight Anthem or even Lucero. If you are a fan of any of the abovementioned "sounds like" bands, you definitely need to give the Sidekicks a listen. I have listened to this album multiple times and it is holding up well in my iPod rotation.
