FIGGS, THE: Casino Hayes: 7″

Mixed bag here. First side, “Casino Hayes,” reminds me of the sound of Dischord bands around 1989/1990. More on the rock side, but not quite mainstream: a little angsty in the vocals, but not yelling and threatening. Then I flip it over to “Another Point of View” and it then these guys sound like Tom Petty, or more in the realm of stuff like Sheryl Crow or Bonnie Raitt. Folky, poppy, and a little bit of rock. If you ever listened to KFOG in San Francisco, The Figgs would fit perfectly into that station’s format.
