The Young Republic

12 Tales From Winter City

The Young Republic

4 / 10 While knowing your Bach from Beethoven might serve a purpose, ‘12 Tales…’, the debut from the eight-strong graduated Boston classmates, is a victim of its own smartness. Granted, its precision ’60s doo-wop fiddle’n’trumpet flexing is as tight as the American election but it’s also more forgettable than Chico. As Young Republics go, Montenegro’s more exciting.
