Lonely Drifter Karen – Three Colors Red
I know, I know! You’re saying: “Steve, you just posted for Lonely Drifter Karen a couple of days ago!” Yes, I know. I’m fully aware that I’m repeating myself. Here’s the deal: After listening to a couple more tracks from the band, I don’t think I was totally fair in my assessment. I’m finding the band compelling to listen to. Take this track, Three Colors Red, which channels a little Jefferson Airplane along with today’s alt-pop sounds, as an example. The band turns out to be very inventive on repeated listens to multiple tracks. In fact, Poles, the long-player that Three Colors Red and the previously reviewed, Comet, come from, is on my purchase queue.
