Orangetree

Orangetree

Jump Up

This is another poppy, punk-ska CD about girls. It’s nothing real groundbreaking. The lead singer kind of sings like a girl, but he’s a guy. The style seems to be too old for angry youth, but too young for the two-tone sounding ska about drugs and stuff. I’m sure Orangetree is real good live. “Eye to Eye” is a good song that starts out with minor sounding guitar, and then explodes into a high-energy chorus. I can’t really recommend anyone who would like it, because it’s not quite for the Less Than Jake crowd, but on the other hand, it’s not for the Skatalites crowd. So if you’re looking for a middle ground, this is for you.

Screen Reviews

The fact that the band Slaves to Sirens exists is impressive, but that they live, love, and breathe to play metal takes things to another level. Sirens documents the journey. Review by Charles DJ Deppner.
