For Those Who Can't Wait - S/T

This is a pretty darn good first effort from Long Island's For Those Who Can't Wait. There were three tunes that stood out to me in particular.

"Play Your Note" is a little bit Latterman/Shorebirds-like, and there's nothing wrong with that. After all, given where they call home, it makes perfect sense that their sound would be informed by these groups.

"The Tiger Becomes a Zebra" is a delightfully slow-building epic that sounds like Mineral/Texas Is the Reason/etc. strove to form a more perfect union. I have great love for second-wave emo, so I thus found much endearing about this song.

"Jesus Chrisis" is a fine closer. More dashes of Long Island punx here.
