Singing Bridges: Three Trains EP
Singing Bridges' Three Trains EP harkens back to the days of early 90s jangle pop. The 5-song CD is full of reverbed-out female vocals, jangly rhythm guitar, and a glimpse of sonic experimentation. Simple, straightforward songs like "Crazy Street" hammer the point home and show they definitely have an ear for the genre. It's no surprise to find that two of the band members, William and Christine, run Skipping Stones Records, a local label handling tweepop bands like The Besties and Iceland's Dyrdin. They have also organized Popfest! New England the past few years. While the demo isn't really breaking any new ground, if you're a fan of Bunnygrunt, Calvin Johnson, or really anything on K Records, you might want to check them out. You can snag the EP at Skipping Stones.
