CD Review: Come Visit The Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library
The music ranges from the Americana sounding "Amylee" to the dark folk storytelling of "The Weeping Song". The Memorial Library tries to add a bit of pop overtones in "Every Time I Visit You, It Rains", but the monotone vocals and mellow instrumentation keeps the mood somber. Even if the song's subject matter isn't always pleasant as in "Lymph Nodes", the up-tempo sound of the music gives the song a light, airy feeling. The band comes together in unison on "Civil Engineering" as the tempo and lyrics mesh well together.
The band have a show scheduled for May 19 in Cambridge, MA. For more information and song samples from the Michael J. Epstein Memorial Library, please visit michaeljepstein.com.
