FREEVERSE: Generator: CD

Nov 08, 2006

This is a three-piece, all-girl band from Seattle via Lawrence, Kansas. Musically, I’d say it’s a mix of indie rock, heavy rock, and riot grrl stuff. Some songs don’t work, but when they stick to the eclectic, quirky sound I like ‘em more. Lyrically, they lean on topics of current American despair. I can relate. In the ‘90s bands like Smut, Morsel, Dogfaced Hermans, and Kicking Giant mixed up female vocals and similar genres a little. If I was rating this record, I’d say they have a six here. They’re not your run of the mill formulaic band, but they’re still not killing it yet. Maybe next time.
