I fear they will sell less records due to their name…
When you see the name Evangenitals, there are several genres that come to mind – Metal, Screamo, Emo, Novelty, Comedy, etc. But, you certainly wouldn’t think, “Ya know, I bet this group is filled with musical intelligence and raw talent at every angle, especially in their female lead singer. I can’t wait to hear this mellow blend of eclectic tunes based around a country vibe…”. Okay, if you haven’t guessed by now, then that’s exactly what you should think!
Evangenitals are based in Los Angeles, California and lead by front-girl Juli Crockett. Their new self-titled ep is 7 tracks worth of listening pleasure. I mean, the songs are so good that the name, the album art, or even me telling you about them simply will not do it justice. And, here we go with comparisons again…. It honestly gives me the same feel as She & Him (which is, for those of you that don’t know, a project consisting of Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward) but, I’ll go ahead and say it, I like this considerably more!!
So, if you can get past the name, do! If you love the name already, then, you’re set! Go buy this album from iTunes!
