You're on, you're wrong, Ohio

Today, it all about the big ass music festivals.

And first up on that list is Bound Stems, who mostly get compared to Modest Mouse, which is pretty dead on. Maybe a dash of Pavement in there too. However, Bound Stems are missing the magic that MM and Pavement possess. A je ne sais quoi new musical energy source created within a band sparked by a singer. I do not envision myself rushing off to see Bound Stems, but if they were playing a stage before someone I wanted to see, I don't think it would be painful.
