    The album’s 10 songs are over and done in under 20 minutes. The impression they leave at the end of it all is huge.

    Slight emptiness aside, this is one of the most confident, self-assured debuts of the year--striking, exciting, and intimidating to Little Dragon fans everywhere.

    A middle ground is still to be reached, but at the least, Plague Vendor is proof that even in these times of combos called Dancing, Girls, and the Teen Age, one can come up with an intriguing band name, matched to music that also begs for further investigation.

    It’s a clutch of sharp, abrasive punk anthems, underpinned by tight, funk-tinged rhythms.

    As referential as Free To Eat can be on its own, there are times when a band notes an influence that completely changes your perception of it.

    Plague Vendor have captured the feeling of youthful defiance that spurred the genre's pioneers to action, and while their debut might not be long enough to be the soundtrack to your late-night antics, it's the perfect album to light the fuse on a night you probably won't remember in the morning.
