Save Pluto - Age of Lowered Expectations - 2007

Their debut album, Age of Lowered Expectations, is reminiscent of Barenaked Ladies meets Matthew Sweet. It’s fun, it’s smart, and it rocks. The group’s musicianship shines through on the album, with all three band members sharing lead vocal duties on various songs.
Shawn Moynihan (vocals, rhythm guitar) and Alan Miller (guitar, vocals), songwriting partners since high school, have been recognized by Billboard Magazine's National Songwriting Contest, and were commissioned to write the theme song for the New York Yankees' minor league team on Staten Island. Miller's guitar skills, displayed prominently on the album, have also been featured in Guitar One Magazine. Gautam Peri completes the lineup on bass and keyboards. -CD Baby
