SYCAMORE: Self-titled: Cassette

Jun 06, 2014

I’m generally a fan of garage punk in all its varieties, but something about this wasn’t really doing it for me. I think it might have been the recording, which felt uneven at times. The drummer’s cymbals were so loud that they overpowered almost everything else. I really dug the track “In Your Living Room,” partly because I could hear more of what was going on musically. The shared vocal duties were a nice touch throughout the tape, particularly on the track “Leave(s).” While this didn’t really do it for me, I’m interested to hear more from this band.
