EMERGENCY BROADCAST SYSTEM: Self-titled: CDEP

This is quite a nice little package, but it’s one of those records that really kind of defy accurate classification. I guess I would say that it sounds like modern radio mixed with post-punk sensibility like Joy Division. And it also kinda reminds me of bands that I’ve been hearing out of Kansas City over the last ten years or so—melodic and powerful, but defying the possibility of being pigeon-holed due to inventive composition that borders on the experimental at times. Sorry if this one escapes my verbal skills. I like it, anyway.
