DRY COUNTY, THE: Self-titled: 7”

May 26, 2008

Limited screen printed cover? Dope. Multi-colored baby faces with birds and brains that look like yarn coming out of their noses? I dunno. The babies are growing on me. This trio out of Florida breeds a peculiar mix of indie rock and pop. Of the three tracks, “With Friends” is the song that makes me wince. Carson’s nasally pop star vocals are such a contrast to the riffy guitar solo that it makes me think he belongs in a different band. “With Friends (Part 2)” is a lo-fi acoustic extension that, in my opinion, works a lot better. –Kristen K
