Genre: indie rock
Jun 23 - 29 2003
of Rochester, NY comes an all new indie rock band featuring two
members, S. Laines and C. Kleport. The music is
simple guitar, drums, and vocals stuff, alright although nothing
The band's sound is best summed up by "Don't Let It Be,"
a dark, grungy number with a catchy yet imperfect melody. Indie
rockers will enjoy its moody, powerful sound that recalls Jawbox,
Slint, and other early greats, but might yearn for something a
bit more inventive. The rest of the disc follows the same flow,
for better or for worse. Tracks like "Mbif" and
"Open Chair" use the formula to good effect, whereas
"The Black Arts Revisited" and "Never a Lender"
suffer a less successful fate.
This is an okay EP, but Seneca Laines will want to add some
more melody and rearrange their formula for the next release.
6 songs, distributed by the
band, released 2002]
