In high school, the Fall of Troy were one of those bands I desperately wanted to love (mostly so I could impress my "cool" friends and pretty girls who dressed in black), but never was able to. I tried convincing myself that they were merely a Yes/Weezer hybrid, which in hindsight I realize was a fucking ridiculous—but necessary—delusion. I eventually accepted that they weren't my deal. And then I pretty much forgot about them altogether, until I heard the debut from Thomas Erak's new band, Just Like Vinyl, last year—which, well, sounds unmistakably like everything else he's done (in particular, his old band's swan song, In the Unlikely Event). Even if Erak hasn't evolved at all since then, his new material could have been a lot worse—and it'll at least keep fans pacified until the inevitable TFOT reunion. MORGAN TROPER
