Hello, everyone - MissTaintedLove back with another music review.
Today, I will be reviewing the music of 'The Mascot Theory', an alternative country-rock band from Madison, Wisconsin. I will mainly be reviewing the music from their debut album, 'Under the Borrowed Moon'.
Check them out here, and enjoy the review!
"The music of Mascot Theory has been called 'a full-fat, high-energy dose of Americana-tinged, folk-country rock'" - From the band's Facebook page
The Mascot Theory is a country/rock and roll band from Madison, Wisconsin, and they are signed with Stone After Stone Records. The band is made up of:
Erik Kjelland - vocals, acoustic guitar, banjitar
Nick Fry - upright bass, vocals
Adam White - vocals, electric guitar
Paul Metz - drums, percussion, vocals
Their jams, rhythms, and riffs are mostly deliciously country. Their attitude is rocking, edgy, with a story to tell and something to say. From the slower storytale, 'Time to Move on' to the rockin', toe-tappin' 'Asphodel Meadows' to the totally rockin' out 'Like Babel Coming Down' - every song is made to move you. Every tune is crafted to the tune of someone's feelings, and the lyrics are meant to say so much.
The musicianship of every piece is professionally done, and all songs are professionally recorded. The vocals are clear, crisp, and forefront. The production is flawless.
Don't just take my word for it - go and check out The Mascot Theory right now! You certainly will not regret it, and your ear drums will thank you.
