Cardboard Houses 7″ (Equal Vision Records)
release date: 9/04/2012
by Scott Hefflon
From North Carolina, pretty new band, first release on a label of note, recorded at Salad Days and produced by Brian McTernan so it sounds strong, but there’s just not a lot to talk about with “Cardboard Houses.” Band of Horses wanna-be verses and “power” choruses that condense the umph into something Muse or The Sheila Divine woulda chucked as pussy. But they’re a young band, give them time to write something less obvious and dumbed down.
