DOPPLEPOPOLIS: Dopplepopolis: CDEP

An intriguing five-song debut from this Lafayette, Ind. trio. It features two tracks of out-and-out power pop, another with a slightly harder punk edge to it, and also a pair of ‘90s indie rock-influenced tunes. It provides for a varied listen and it does seem a bit like I’m listening to more than one band, but somehow the EP works well. This is down to the songs themselves being well written and equally well performed. However, the power pop approach finds more favor with me. –Rich Cocksedge (Self-released, [email protected], dopplepopolis.bandcamp.com)
