The Playing Favorites play radio-ready modern-rock/emo from Los Angeles reminiscent of Superdrag and their power-pop brethren, cheery songs tinted with anguished lyrics and vocals that break through the veneer sheen. There's hardly anything new here, but fans of competent pop will find plenty to glom onto.
