(Horse Drawn) My fave local band delivers the rock, or at least a few tasty slices of it on this 5 song ep. Though these cuts, as exquisitely recorded as they are, don’t quite capture the band’s live energy, the power of Leilani’s voice or Vee’s guitar wailing, “Girl Fight” is as solid a serving of kickass as you can expect. Though the cartoon cover is cute, I have to say I’m surprised how lo-fi the design on this CD is – this seems like such an ambitious, talented act I expected to be blown away by the art when they finally released something. But forget visuals (which is hard to do when the band has a panda in it), this still banged pretty bangingly and big!
