Embarrassing Fruits on a not-so-embarrassing tour (you can be sure of that)

Yeah, Triangle trio Embarrassing Fruits are hitting up a tour to promote the new Community/Exploitation record from Trekky Records. There is this darker folk feeling that sneaks its way through the Embarrassing Fruits’ offerings, like a rat that isn’t supposed to be in the house, but then he is, and everyone gets used to it. No that didn’t sound right. Anyway, this tends towards the lighter side, but the songs never slight and never hold back from rockin’ in the Embarrassing Fruits way. Front guy Joe Norkus has this really easy going manner that flaunts innocence but omniscience that it is impossible to ignore the fact that these guys know what they’re doing. Or something. I’ll try again: Embarrassing Fruits are for those who prefer lighthearted but earnest country-twinged modern rock full of forward moving chords and verses and choruses that stay around for a few days. Like that rat I mentioned earlier. Love some “Nakata” off Community and “First Time” off the original EP, The First Time. And a vid follows after the jump.
