I bring you a real treat, a band called The Coach and Four. They are from Memphis, TN, and are part of Snowglobe’s wonderful Makeshift Music community. This mini-album is well-played indie rock with one foot in the “traditional songcraft” world and the other in regions more adventurous. Rather than mish-mash it all together, The Coach and Four prefers to go genre-hopping from song-to-song, taking the listener from Sonic Youth-y pop to Southern Rock workouts to beautiful slowed-down electronic stuff. And all of it is very, very catchy.
