Recently, I’ve been downloading and listening to music like crazy from Band Camp. This is a review of a group of songs by the same band I got from Band Camp- usually it constitutes an EP. This is a song-by-song review and it is never to exceed six songs. At the end, I will tell you the “Recommended Downloading Level”, which means whether or not I think you should spend your time downloading these songs. It’s on a scale from 1 to 5, 5 meaning that you should stop reading my review and download these songs immediately and 1 meaning that if you even think about downloading these songs your computer will be infected with a horrific bad music virus. Enjoy.
CH U R C H E S s/t
<1> “BELONG” [2:13] – This has that rock bordering on punk sound of something along the lines of Supergrass or Smoking Popes. I’m feeling this sound so far.
<2> “FEEL ALRIGHT” [1:57] – This honestly sounds like a song that could have come straight off of the Nirvana “With the Lights Out” boxed set.
<3> “HUSK” [2:35] – This song has the quality of a faster paced Soul Asylum song to it.
<4> “KATIE” [3:15] – Another song in the same vein as Soul Asylum but not quite 100% like something they’d record.
<5> “SAVE ME” [2:26] – This song starts like it could be The Fray and it has that same overall quality throughout. This is not the Remy Zero song that opens Smallville, unfortunately.
<6> “DEATH” [2:05] – We kind of have a Weezer sound here, but it still sticks true to the original influences as well.
This is about fourteen and a half minutes, but it’s a definite refreshing change of pace from the shit music I usually end up downloading for some reason. It was a pleasant surprise I think that you’d enjoy as well.
Recommended Downloading Level: 4/5
