Hand Drawn Mountains - Old Fires (EP)

Hand Drawn Mountains
Old Fires (EP)
(c)2009 Independent

I love it when a band veers from the standard rock and roll sound to incorporate instruments like xylophone and brass. “This Earth A Choir” reminds me a bit of Dignan with the almost gang vocals added. “Every Man The Same” has a workman quality similar to any of Bill Mallonee’s efforts. Other songs of note are “Oil and Water” and the melancholy, almost brooding “Happiness”. I just wish this were a full project.
