The Gregory Brothers Meet the Gregory Brothers!
Like many, I found out about the Gregory Brothers through their Auto-Tune the News series. When I listened to their "normal" music, I was shocked it hadn't received more exposure compared to the ATTN videos. These folks are budding masters of their craft, and this EP is a pleasure to listen to. Let me quantify that: in the few months since I purchased the EP, I've given it at least eight full listen-throughs, and a few of the songs are in the 30+ to 50+ listen range. This EP just keeps on giving. It's great stuff- catchy enough to draw you right in, but with enough complexity and richness that it keeps you coming back.
I recommend these tracks in particular:
Butter on My Roll: If you listen to only one Gregory Brothers song, you need to listen to this one. This track is pure soulful art: a genuine and touching piece that rocks with all the infectious joy of a Beatles track circa 64-66. It's an explosion of unironic love and joy, but the rick musicality, vocal virtuosity, and superb production values keep it from feeling campy or stilted. The EP as a whole is excellent, but this track shines in a class of its own.
West Coast Time: This is a very laid-back track- steady, smooth vocals cradled by a satisfying chord progression and harmonic structure. Also, I can't say I've ever listened to a song before that explores the dynamics of communicating across time zones, and there's something really cool about that- it's a quintessentially modern subject that pulls the genre forward, I think.
