Here is an album that is just say “raw” all over it. Very low budget recording, with an amazing amount of energy! There is definitely some talent here. The female vocals by Megan have an edge that is very fitting with the music and really adds to the feel of the entire album. Track-4 is an interesting change in styles, as an instrumental, I hear pieces of some classic rock, with guitar chords reminding me of Rush – however far from it as a whole. Moving into track-5 I sense some 80’s rock styles with the driving bass and single note melody by the guitar…very nice touch.

You will find this album growing on you. This is not something I would normally sit and listen to, but would imagine live they are pretty good. Another note about the vocals, Megan’s style is never quite on key, which I think is what helps give it its rawness and very garage-like sounds. This is an upbeat album that would be a nice addition to a part mix. I think you may enjoy it!

Favorite Track: 5, “Vanish”
