MOUTHFEEL: Demo 2017: CD

Jul 25, 2018

Mouthfeel is an indie emo band from Denver. They mix serene, melancholic instrumentation with vocals varying between sugary soft pop lamentation and shouted emo havoc. Tracks like “Drive” tend to hone the indie sound, whereas “Bandwitch” and “Channel Null” tend more towards the group’s heavier side, both in terms of vocals and instrumentation. This release was short and to the point, but still felt a little meandering and average. The group seems to regurgitate some safe emo and indie trends with little to pay attention to. The playing and vocals are both entirely fine, but even devoted emo fans probably wouldn’t get much out of this. –Anna Farr (Self-released,
