Empire Machines “Empire Machines EP”
<1> “Never Enough” – This starts with an indie rock feel, but it turns into something like soft 1980’s/early 1990’s rock. It reminds me of the band that originally sang “Don’t You Forget About Me”, whose name slips my mind right now.
<2> “Sweet Teeth” – Forgive me, I sort of slept through this song.
<3> “Outpost” – This picks up with some guitars rocking to make a sound that quite isn’t like Ultimate Fakebook or The Juliana Theory but is close. Definite Elliot Smith vocals in this song as well.
<6> “Burning Ties” - This song kind of embodies everything that this band has done on its own so far, without sounding like another band that is to say, and it’s actually my favorite of all these songs.
