Sorry No Ferrari must have taken a criticism to heart from our review of their last release, Oh Snap!, and it has worked absolute wonders. Overlook the hilariously terrible artwork of their new-ish EP, The Get Down Syndrome, and you'll be rewarded with excellent, chilled out all-instrumental indie/emo highly in the vein of American Football and early Minus the Bear.

For such a seemingly young band, Sorry No Ferrari sound immensely accomplished on The Get Down Syndrome. The songs are mathy, spacey, and offer a variety of moods (from upbeat to even pensive and distraught), even if all the while there's a serious Highly Refined Pirates vibe. Take "Tuba Toothpaste," or "Jamaican Me Crazy" with its intricate, staccato riffs; maybe even "Adult Braces," which ushers in the disc moving energetically.

The Get Down Syndrome is a surprisingly tight and wonderful little release from Sorry No Ferrari. Hopefully like their peers in Look Mexico that were quickly noticed and snatched up, Sorry No Ferrari get the same treatment as they're producing a similar and just as swell type of creative sound.

the out of date lameness of the jokes is what makes it funny you total jock retard. calling people "lame" is so lame.

As goes for lots of stuff on this site, SNF isn't PUNK, but these guys are awesome. Good guys playing some really fucking cool original music. It's something that I would put on in the background to chill out to.

how come, when shit like this gets reviewed on here there's never any idiots saying, "the site's called PUNKnews.org"...this band is pretty descent but they have less in common with punk than slayer does, and yet whenever slaer is mentioned it's always "the sit'es not called METALnews.org"

just wondering

Brian doesn't know anything about the triology. I had to explain it to him a few nights ago after he introduced me to the band. Kids these days.

Holy ass crap! How did Brian get through that review and not mention "AxelF" it's from the greatest trilogy of all time. This band deserves a medal just for that.

I have to say the terrible album name got me interested in this review (not as funny as Oh Snap!, but it's good), but the review actually made me listen to the band.
The first thing that came to mind was Colossal with some Tera Melos type riffs thrown in. I don't know if they actually know or care who either of those bands are, but it's as good a comparison as I can make. I usually don't like this instrumental music but this is surprisingly good.

P.S. More lobsters on the next album.
