For those Valentine's Day castaways, nothing gives you better chances for lad or lady luck than a dimly lit space with multiple-stalled bathrooms and, of course, moderately priced liquor. You won't be able to see her crooked teeth, and you won't notice his generous man tits. Plus, you won't care. It's Valentine's Day, goddamnit. Yer Cronies present the perfect soundtrack to really inappropriate public promiscuity. It sets the mood. Vocals are languid. Guitars and piano lull like Amnesiac-era Radiohead. And most of the songs are slow enough that you won't have to embarrass yourself by trying to dance. Even if you don't find the right one-night stand, you still get an evening of pretty music. Awww. Everyone wins. With the Absent Arch and Tentacle Boy. 21+.
