My new favorite band

Can men in their 40s claim things like this without sounding hopelessly adolescent? Well, Robert Christgau's is in his 60s and he too claims them as a "favorite": "It's as if they've reduced all of white Ohio to an articulated drone, unlocked a silo or warehouse of hummable tunes, and worked out the harmonies."

The band in question.
