The Anthemeers “EP”

They’re an indie rock band with occasional hooks but otherwise unspectacular. “Becoming Something” is really long and builds and builds but doesn’t really do anything with itself.
A shorter song that sounds about the same is “Stray Dog.” Gin Blossoms come to mind when I hear this. “Landslide” has the same guitar as the Sundays’s “Hideous Towns.”
“Peace” is another long one that starts slowly and builds over time. “Coyote” on the other hand dives right in. This is the one they save for encores. The last track is “Phaedrus” and has banjo. Not quite like Shawn Colvin’s “Sunny Came Home,” but it’s close. It does pick up as the song progresses, however.
Maybe it’s just not my cup of tea, but the Anthemeers didn’t do much for me here.
