COFFINBERRY: Self-titled: CD

I’m usually a little leery when well-recorded indie music states that it’s tracked on a Tascam Portastudio. Though I respect DIY 8-track endeavors, usually what the audience is not told is what silly expensive outboard gear the group used, if any, or the accolades of the mixer or master person. With that written, Coffinberry has a honed indie style of rock music. They know how to explore different sounds from modern influenced altcountry a la “Celebrate the Holy Innocents” to textural guitar pop, i.e. Lorena. This is a well-crafted indie effort that sounds experimental without being pretentious and it’s recorded on an 8-track…well done.
