Genre: indie rock, punk rock
Mar 28, 2009
Forever plays juicy, hooky, eighties-style fem-fronted indie rock.
They've got the energy, dissonant guitars and zippy tempos
down pat, making for a raucously fun (if brief) romp. There's no
smugness here, only bare-bones rock n' roll. The two best tracks are
infectious opener "Oh Distant Heart" and bompy "Tumbleweed," although
nothing really drops the ball. Forever's use of clanging guitars and
crashing percussion are what makes this EP, resulting in messy rock
songs that would fit right in on the soundtrack to a violent,
sixties-era grindhouse flick. Quite the departure for the HHBTM label.
Forever's disc is a solid EP, although the
formula might have
worn thin on a
longer record - this one's only fifteen minutes long.
