Annuals “Sweet Sister”

June 21, 2010

It’s an EP. The first track is “Loxtep” and could be a play on the word “lockstep.” The song itself is fine, but it gets lost in itself during the bridge. This track needs an editor, because by the time we get the fun synthy stuff, more than three minutes have already passed.
“Turncloaking” sounds like a slowed-down version of Mankind Liberation Front, which has to be a coincidence. I mean, what are the odds? The title track sounds like a Sting/Paul Simon duet with Talking Heads background music.
“Holler and Howl” sounds like two songs playing at once but not in an ironic way. Some people take their half-assery very seriously, and I can’t say that Annuals can count themselves among those people. It just sounds sloppy, instead. It reminds me of some Porno for Pyros stuff.
“Flesh and Blood” is the last track and has the same intro as “Mayor of Simpleton” by XTC. After the intro, it’s still a good song, but I keep thinking of XTC instead. It messes with my head.
