Lives Of Famous Men, The - Rehearsal EP

Reviewed by: Nathan Lint (11/27/07)
The Lives Of Famous Men - Rehearsal EP
Released: July 10, 2007
Unsigned

Who?

A quintet out of Portland, Oregon, playing dancey pop meets jazz.

How Is It?

My problem with EP's, along with many other people, is that they're always so damn short. But when you only get 4 songs instead of... 6 or 7, it feels similar to how it feels when you have a 9 or 10 song full length CD. These are usually the bands you scurry for b-sides and bootlegs. The Lives Of Famous Men could be that band someday soon, already announcing the release of a second 3 song EP. Rehearsal shows tons of promise. It has good hooks, fun instrumentals, and it leaves you with a nice dirty feeling after listening. Every track is different from the others, and that keeps the music fresh and easy to listen to over and over and over again. If this is only the beginning for this band, in five years, with the current state of the scene (but in a good way) they could be the next Panicatthefalloutboyslikealltime... . you get the picture.

P.S. This review got a Once Over Because of how short it is, but don't let that discourage you.
