Review by Alphonse Leong
The band's musicality is so pronounced that the lyrics seem like an afterthought, like "Please don't leave me, I'm dying for you" from, yes, "Dying for You." In any event, the vocals aren't earth-shattering and they're lowered in the mix, like an implicit admission that laying down grooves is the band's real game. If you like your songs neat and tidy with snappy structure, "Senorita" is Jesse's Girl's poppiest offering, with an actual attempt at a hooky chorus; but most of the other songs aren't intended to be sing-along numbers, you just feel 'em. A feature that stands out is Shane Impey's bass playing, which you can't help but notice in every song -- it's punctuating as hell!
As a six-song introduction, the aural equivalent of a sample tray of sausage from Safeway, this tape demands a taste.
Artist Contact Info: The band forgot to put a mailing address on the cassette, but you can email 'em at firstname.lastname@example.org.
