Excerpt from an article on Five Times August (Brad Skistimas), from The Houston Press

http://blogs.houstonpress.com/rocks/..._august_at.php

Musically, Five Times August's songs are acoustic accounts of breakups and hookups, heartfelt if largely innocuous: catchy, strummy, even a little funky in that acoustic white-guy way. Fleetwood Mac's Lindsey Buckingham is an obvious, profound influence, to which Skistimas readily copped before a meandering, wistful cover of "Landslide." Another, apparently, is certain '90s sitcoms, at least judging by the YouTube popularity of his version of the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air theme song.
