FOOD: Four Pieces from Candyland: LP

Jul 24, 2013

Ed fROMOHIO returns with a new EP’s worth of boss tunes accompanied by Gumball’s Eric Vermillion and the Cynics’ Mike Quinlan. There are enough of the inevitable hints of fIREHOSE in the songwriting to satisfy fans of that bygone band, but the stuff here stands handily on its own, um, six feet. Four tunes of twangy indie-rock, smart yet catchy, strong yet imbued with sensitivity. Been a while since I’ve heard anything from Mr. fROMOHIO, and it was nice to hear he and his bandmates putting in some quality work here
