From the swampy basements of western PA come the roots-pop rumblings of The Optimists, four Pittsburgh music-scene lifers who still carry the torch for guitar-based verse/chorus songwriting, the likes of which hasn't been heard around these parts since radios had dials and phones plugged into the wall. They dig for hooks wherever they can find them and try to verbalize ideas in some kind of way that makes some kind of sense. To them, at least. Too young to be hip but too old to die, the Optimists are waging a war for the soul of rock 'n roll and they won't stop till Dorothy surrenders.
