We really wanted to like Over the Atlantic, in part because they have a great name, and there was something really endearing about these two boys from New Zealand who made Beach House sound like Bitch House. But the laptop just ruined it for us. We're not opposed to computer-generated music, in some cases we can't get enough of it. But during a live show it can be distracting and awkward. We were paying more attention to member Bevin Smith bending down to fiddle with the mouse on his laptop than the songs. Our late Monday night was starting to catch up with us and Over the Atlantic's droning, muffled sounds weren't helping us stay awake.
