Once upon a time, a new album on Saddle Creek Records was filled with folky angst and heartfelt, and at times over the top, lyrical sensibilities. Not anymore.

Lincoln, Nebraska's UUVVWWZ(pronounced double you, double vee, double double-you, zee) have not been a band for very long. Apparently their Saddle Creek debut is the first nine songs that the band has ever composed together and it's certainly a great start.

Lead singer Teal Gardner's pipes shine throughout, and the Deerhoof and Yeah Yeah Yeahs comparisons are obvious throughout. But where their sound really comes together is when they add their blues influence to their rambunctious rock sound. There are definitely four or five songs here that are worth your time, and apparently they put on one hell of a live show.

I know there's a lot of hate in my heart. Perhaps so much hate that there might not be room for me to hate anything else, but I hate that band name.
But look I'm not all bad: how delightful that most of their songs are enjoyable.

My initial response was that I hate their name. And I hate the way the band says you are are supposed to pronounce it.

But I like to think that it's not so much of a name as it is a visual, there is something very beautiful about UUVVWWZ as an image.
