MATT EVERETT: White Sugar: CD

There’s no getting around that the first track of this CD is basically disco. Then it leans toward whispery singer-songwriter indie for a minute, goes a little bit experimental, kinda swings back toward the disco at some point, and mixes in some psych rock. I’m trying not to let it be completely obvious that the disco thing immediately and irreversibly turned me off to this, but that’s what happens when you send White Sugar in to a punk zine. Please let the title of this album not be a reference to how this dude is a white guy playing soul-influenced music. This sounds like every third demo CD I imagine you’d have handed to you every day if you worked at a coffee shop that did open mics. –Indiana Laub (75orLess, [email protected], 75orlessrecords.com)
