ANNABEL: Now That We’re Alive: CD-R

Annabel is a three piece indie pop band from Ohio. They’ve got nice melodies and know how to put together a good song; that is for sure. Their sound is really pure and friendly. There’s not much on the five songs that would be off-putting. I should also mention they have nice DIY packaging with a piece of cardboard covered in flannel cloth with a little pocket for the CD and tray card to sit in. The songs seem nice to listen to on a sunny day with your window open, and yet, I can’t see myself really becoming super excited about a band like this. Then again, they are playing The Fest this year, so that’s got to count for something, right?
