SERVO: Everything: CD

Nov 24, 2009

Finally! A discography has been compiled! This band was a favorite of mine for the duration of their short existence from 1997-2000. It all started for me with their Blueprint 7” and the full-length, Everything’s Difficult CD. Both got heavy rotation in my house. A dreamy blend of infectious melodies and strong pop hooks filled the air. I always got a cheery feeling with a hint of despair from their songs. Female-led vocals are delivered with innocence and a striking, honest quality. The bass stood out for me as the driving force of the songs, while the guitar complimented and added texture to the songs. The drums are what add the punk flair to tie everything together. So glad to finally hear songs from various splits that I missed and the unreleased tracks are a bonus. Hope a renewed interest in the band emerges so that a reunion is possible.
