Editorial Reviews

2014 EP from the hotly-tipped Pennsylvania Indie quartet. with comparisons to My Morning Jacket, the Pixies, Ryan Adams, Cold War Kids and Spoon, the band's sound is tailor-made for the hipster in all of us.

Don't let the two star review fool you. These guys have an electrifying live show and are talented musicians whom have a (hopefully!) long career in store. Most of these guys just graduated from high school and can't really be compared to Bill Callahan, an artist with year upon year in which to hone his craft. But whatever, just download the tunes and decide whether the infectious blues-rock gets your jeans in gear. Love these jams. <3.

I love this ep, each song is just so amazing. I especially love Funeral Beds and Rocking Chair.

There are two kinds of bands on indie labels: ones who want to be there, and ones who are there because they haven't gotten any interest from larger labels yet. On the basis of their debut EP, I'd say Lancaster, PA's The Districts are firmly in the latter camp. Positioned at the intersection of rootsy blues-rock a la The Alabama Shakes and swoony folk singalongs a la Mumford & Sons, a stadium of market researchers and focus groups couldn't come up with a nominally rock style more likely to gain traction on radio circa 2014. Which isn't to say there's anything wrong with pursuing success--I, for one, wish more of the great rock acts of today made any sort of attempt to break through to a larger audience. (If Bill Callahan, for instance, kept releasing singles as undeniable as "Diamond Dancer," eventually someone would have to play them, right?) But pop songs, especially these days, rise and fall on their sense of personality, and the young men of The Districts come across as well-scrubbed, sincere ciphers. No arresting turns of phrase catch the ear, and while they avoid any obvious clunkers, they spend five songs not really saying anything at all.

Worse, they only seem comfortable with a loping mid-tempo rhythm--they never attempt anything faster, and the two somewhat slower songs on the EP are the two worst. They try to cover for this deficiency with needlessly complicated, baroque song structures, by which I don't mean to say this is Yes or anything, but I swear there were six false endings between five songs. "Funeral Beds" is the song that's grabbed them some attention in the first place, but it seems lopsided to me--four minutes of shuffling Beggars Banquet folk blues riffs suddenly turns into a sloppy attempt at a Joe Cocker-style emotional catharsis.
