Check Out: MiniBoone
That is what is so great about this band. They are willing to mix things up and change direction. Very few of their songs follow a direct path throughout the whole song. Yes, there are moments on the EP that stick to a straight-forward and more linear path, "Summer Jams" for example, the first song on the EP, steers pretty straight. But there are many surprises and unforeseen areas that stick out, creating a unique listening experience. There are also many areas where the band harmonizes sections of lyrics ("Funny Money" and other songs) or just simple "oohs", which is...............(I just realized why there is monopoly money flying around in there picture...) incredibly enjoyable. I almost want to relate these guys to Pavement. You know, that hidden, underlying humor feel while not completely giving in and getting too silly.
This is a very tight, and creative band that deserves your ears. I highly suggest and recommend you check em' out and give some love. Snag a free MP3 of their insanely good song "Devil In Your Eyes" and give em a shout on myspace.
Oh, by the way, you are required to buy their new EP "Big Changes" if you read this review......sorry, forgot to mention that...............just kidding. BUT you should definitely snag their EP for the pocket-change price of $5 dollars.
