The Evens - The Odds 2012

The husband and wife duo of Ian MacKaye (Fugazi, Minor Threat) and Amy Farina (The Warmers) have had a pretty good reason for their long break between their last album and 'The Odds': They've been being parents to their four-year-old son and generally just living the family life. Hopefully that kid's ready to get his own place soon, because these two have got a great thing going here, and I sure wouldn't want to see it put on hiatus again. While The Evens' sound could still be considered post-hardcore like their previous bands, it's a little more stripped-down, and the intensity-level is a good two notches lower.
