Once upon a time, I had a radio show that only played bands currently performing in the district. That show is super dead, so we’ve resurrected it (with way more words and far less radio) in the form of this column. Everyday I’ll review a song from a band playing in D.C. that night. The rules are, 1. I can only listen to the song once and 2. I only have until the end of the song to finish my review.
SALES – RENEE
This band has a terrible name, but this song is actually kind of great. I like the simplicity. Everything sounds so minimalistic and it all builds upon each other really well. There’s something scratchy (for lack of a better word) behind all the acoustic guitars and haunting vocals, and it kind of reminds me of crickets chirping. The ending is no where near as good as the beginning. The beginning is excellent.
