Movin’ Target–UnPegged–This album moves from genre to genre going from a four to a eight piece band effortlessly. Blending keyboards, midi-guitar, harmonica, lots of percussion and vocal harmonies with a a sax or fiddle thrown in for good measure. The album definitely straddles a line between Americana and more traditional country. keeping the sounds fresh. The group is unique in that four of the band members sing lead vocals. It’s good Texas country/Americana keeping boots tapping. 4.0 McRiprock’s.
Built By Snow–Mega– Scheduled for release on January 13, 2009, Mega is a nine song album of catchy keyboard rock with velcro melodies. There’s no room for filler on this 22 minute album. Magnetic pop hooks from start to finish captivate the listener. They definitely bring a poppy 1980s influence clearing touching on the pop culture and bands that impacted their youth. This is a fun album, offering something a little different and definitely sticky. 5.0 McRiprock’s
Dud’s Take: Press packet came with all things Built By Snow love and find influential including a comic press release and 3D glasses. Rad.
