Music You Don't Know You Like Yet

DEAD SCENE RADIO

Self-Titled EP

2009-11-15

Producer, Ian Walker, compared this Kalamazoo band's sound to that of Ted Leo and the Pharmacists. In some instances, I would agree, particularly the track "Demand". The track "Fuck the Times" sounds a bit like Old 97's. They've included a clean version of the song as well, so it can get some airplay, but I don't know how one would get around the title. So, I guess I'd sum up their sound as roots-rock or even just straight-up rock. There's nothing here that particularly grabbed my ear. It's refreshingly simple stuff, though, that might inspire some toe-tapping from the listener. Rebecca Ruth
