CARTE DE VISITE: Play What You Feel: CD

This thirteen-song, forty minute CD is diverse but tends to register somewhere around the school of music played by The Sea And Cake: mellower indie rock with a slight jazzy feel. It’s got a lo-fi personality to it as well, but the singing sometimes falls flat and not in an endearing fashion, either. Even if the vocals aren’t always the greatest, the music is pretty solid. A couple of the instrumental tracks show this quite well (“Lucid Dream,” “Coasting on the Pavement, Staring at the Sky”). It’s not a bad start from what I perceive is still a pretty young act. More practice and really tightening things up will surely produce some good results.
