CD Review: The Sewing Circle Has Us Seeing "Stars"
The lead vocals of Meghan Blake on the opener "Lead Role" blend well with Andrew Rhodes' buzzing guitars and grunge-like solo. The band moves on from the hard-rocking opener to the angry folk, protest song "So As In Salem", which finds Andrew taking over the reigns on vocals. Their loud, grunge sound returns in "Love Games" which is the perfect combination of vocals and instruments. The band has fun on the laid-back alternative pop sounds of "Five Cigarettes" before closing with the soft-sounding ballad "Until Now" about dealing with loss.
The time spent on their new album was well worth it as The Sewing Circle find the right balance of rock, grunge and pop without losing their edge that makes them unique. The band has live dates lined up into June. For a complete listing, please visit their website, thesewingcircle.net.
