Girls – Broken Dreams Club EP

Heartbreaker Girls’ new EP Broken Dreams club released this week.  The boys from San Francisco, wrote a follow up EP to their ’09 debut, Album, entitled Broken Dreams Club.  As you might be able to discern from previous effort and released single, Heartbreaker, this EP is similarly, songs that are about relationships. The EP starts off with a fantastic track called ‘The Oh So Protective One,‘ a revisit to oldies that has a 50’s vibe and an amazing brass section that gives the idea of a ‘Prom Night for Broken Hearts.’ Heartbreaking track rightly named Heartbreaker is a perfect example…

Generationals – Trust EP

Trust Park the Van indie rockers, Generationals released an EP a few weeks back, entitled Trust.  You may have heard their single Trust, I posted on it a few weeks ago. In their second release, Trust (EP), the band is transitioning from a jangling, sun-kissed sound to a more popcentric more hypnotic, textured, sound.  Based on the success of their hit ‘When they Fight They Fight,’ Generationals flushed out their sound with feedback loops, drum-machine beats and throbbing basslines. “When They Fight They Fight” may be Generationals’ early-career success, but songs like “Victim of Trap” and “Carrying the Torch,” put Generationals on…
