CD Review: New Music From Australian Imports Cub Scouts And Abbe May

From Australia comes Cub Scouts with a new EP, “Told You So.” The band is looking to break-out like fellow Australian rockers The Verve as the Cub Scouts carry a very pop-rock infused sound. The album starts off with the up-tempo, dance-rock of “Evie,” before giving off a more alternative rock sound on the album’s first single, “Told You So.” They quicken the pace on “Do You Hear” as you can’t help but notice their wonderful harmonizing vocals. The album closes with the gentle piano ballad “Light Me Up,” which shows-off their talents in song-writing.

Also new from Australia is the latest single from Abbe May. Her latest album “Design Desire” (reviewed - http://jpsmusicblog.blogspot.com/2011/07/cd-review-abbe-may-returns-with-desire.html) was released back in July and Abbe is already looking forward to her next album. She gives a little taste with her latest single “Karmageddon.” It has a very dark, dance-pop sound with touches or Prince-like sounding vocals. Her songwriting has definitely grown since her last release, but we’ll have to wait and see what she has to offer on her next full-length album.
