Now I may not know much about science, but that doesn’t stop me from drinking heavily and spouting off like I was Stephen Hawking or somebody in a lab coat. Grand Unified Theory, in addition to being some scientific thing I’m too lazy to search out on the Internet, is also a pretty damn good band. Recorded in their apartment in Berkeley, the trio’s debut album sounds like a slightly more stable Connor Oberst fronting Versus. For science geeks and cretins alike, Grand Unified Theory is some good stuff.
