“The debut album from Portland band Metropolitan Farms, Our Hero Pleads His Flimsy Case, is a charming reminder of the era of classic '60s albums, when assorted Beatles and Kinks and Beach Boys and Stones would, two or three times a year, cram seven or so songs onto each side of a double-sided piece of vinyl, and then immediately get to work writing and recording the next one. Like those early classics, some songs on the 15-track Our Hero are decidedly better than others, but there's plenty of gems scattered throughout, particularly the excellent opening track "Stars All Fall." There is also a song about living in a beer commercial, and one that says, "We're all porn stars just below the clothes". Metropolitan Farms is certainly not intended to be an academic throwback to classic pop or anything. Rather, Metropolitan Farms—made up of Josh Mayer, Joe Kobjerowski, and L.W. McGrath have fun making quick bursts of guitar pop that, more likely than not, will get lodged in your head.”
