Red Bellows

A spastic set of influences or similar artists is always a big draw in. Red Bellows lists Envy On The Coast, The Mars Volta, and Margot and The Nuclear So & So's as main influences, which instantly caused me to click on their web address. I'm glad I did. Red Bellows combines jazzy and progressive tendencies with smooth indie rock, adding keys and electronics to morph their sound even more. Vocalist Marc Pellegrino's grimy voice works to the band's strength, working well with the psychedelic moments of tracks such as the harmonica supported chorus of opener "L.S. Blues" or the Radiohead-like "Maps". The band is offering the EP Epone for free, and it is a must download. The link to the download is at their Bandcamp page here.
