The Brooklyn trio The Rogers Sisters pack quite a punch with their catchy songs. I was more impressed with them live than on their recording. The band, like their songs, are full of energy onstage. Although they weren’t doing anything that impressive, the last numbers in the set showed a lot of promise and were more cohesive.
Oh Art Brut. You are so absurd. Your music and band is snotty. Your songs are so immature yet cleverly written. I love you.
These 5 from Britain sing catchy songs that can be humorous or deliver insightful comments about moderen life and culture. They seemed to have gained more confidence and playing better after this past year of touring. However it’s Eddie Argos lyrics and stage delivery that takes their otherwise simple crafted melodies to ironic 3 minute music art pieces. I don’t know if I should take them seriously or just scoff at their amateurish music skills. But in the meantime, I’ll keep listening and jumping to their music.
