Eric Anders

"Songs For Wayward Days" CDR EP

Baggage Room Records

Genres: folk-rock, indie pop

Feb 28 - Mar 6 2005

It's about time someone created a political record without devoting every song to mindlessly bashing George W. Bush.  Eric Anders' Songs For Wayward Days is an intelligent, mature EP that matches literate lyrics with catchy songwriting.  "A Man for No Season" and "Warrior Kin" are downtrodden, slower songs with strong choruses that cleverly express Anders' distaste with his country's current government.  "How Low and Why" is the EP's more upbeat pop song - it's a tight arrangement, combining a subtle 70s tendency with  a modern folk-rock flair.  Whether you're politically motivated or not, it should be easy to appreciate these three infectious, intellectual songs.  Congratulations to Anders for a thoroughly satisfying CD.
