BLIND EYES, THE: With a Bang: CD

Nov 17, 2011

Out of St. Louis, this trio’s second full length continues in the vein of ‘90s alternative. Porter’s crooning vocals over Buffalo Tom chords sound like flannel shirts and Doc Martens. Just to be clear, this is more easy listening than Nirvana or even Pearl Jam. With “Hermetically Sealed,” they veer into outright pop with a sunshiny sing-song harmony. Voted best album of the year in their home town, this is for those who wistfully think back on the original Beverly Hills 90210 and the rise of the Pumpkins.  –Kristen K (Self-Released, blindeyesstl.blogspot.com, [email protected])
