Produced by Canto
Tracks : 1.Old and new 2.You know 3.Dirty water 4.Gasoline 5.Steel toe boots
2,5 out of 5
The Los Angeles based trio Canto is made up of three brothers with "Ride away" as their 2nd release, I did a review of their debut "Hahaha" EP last year and thought it lacked of memorable songs. This time around, the playing is a bit better as well as the music but they still got things to improve. I do like the 70´s rock of "Steel toe boots" and find the Britpop of "Dirty water" quite charming, track no.4 "Gasoline" sounds like it was handmade for a new Tarantino movie. Cool. This EP might do the trick for you if you´re into bands like Arcade Fire and Franz Ferdinand.
The first two songs feels a bit mediocre but like I said, they´re headed in the right direction.
