RICECRACKERS: Kolohe Kid: CD-R

Four-song demo on CD-R from this Boston area band, with several different sounds happening. The best song is the opener “Mall Girls,” which has a wispy folk feel, not unlike something like Tudor Lodge until it breaks into generic ‘90s alt rock toward the end. The other three songs vary from indie type stuff to a full-on melodic punk song that closes out the demo. The band has a lack of focus and no defined a style yet, in standard demo form.
