Genre: indie rock
from dallas comes red monroe, an above average modern indie
rock band who play with passion and a healthy use of keyboards. at
first i wasn't sure, but they've got a really slick and nice sound.
there's a very big and vast feel behind the music - a song like "carolina
cigarette" charges ahead with a nice momentum. kind of reminds me of
the firebird band's drive ep. "i don't know him but he's
an innocent man" has tinges of dream rock and a really nice guitar
hook. red monroe aren't rewriting any books here but this has melody
and style in spades, and that's something i can respect.
