Minneapolis punk band Farewell Continental is fronted by guitarist Justin Pierre, who's also the wonky-haired front man for pop-punk band Motion City Soundtrack. Though this side project shares a lot in common with its predecessorsee syrupy melodies and silly lyrics that sound more meaningful than they actually arethere are a few new additions. Occasionally, Farewell Continental songs employ the sounds of malfunctioning computers, keyboards and theremins, along with slower-tempo rhythms and the soothing harmonies with Kari Gray. Hey, has anyone noticed that Pierre sort of looks like actor Kal Penn?
