We Were the Soul Survivors

Pet of the Month - Apples and Oranges EP
My Thoughts: Love (<)

A little EP showed up in my inbox by the one man wonder, Paul Banker, of Chicago, currently going by Pet of the Month. The tracks have a Casiotone for the Painfully Alone feel at times, but not to the extent that it's a rip off. On first listen one can hear that there is a lot of love in these tracks, and a certain amount of knowledge as to how to run a synthesizer. The songs are simple, but like a freshly mined gem, beautiful. A pinch of indie rock and a dab of distortion, the EP is a small portion, but surprisingly filling.
