Elsinore

Add Date: April 6

Artist: Elsinore

Album: The Chemicals EP

Label: Perennial

Genre: Pop rock

Comments: "The Champaign, Ill. band has developed a knack for punchy choruses with well-timed falsetto crooning and the occasional Beach Boys-esque four-part harmonies, but is still unafraid to swerve unexpectedly into the depths of hard-rock riffage." Or so The Onion says. While this EP is just a snippet of this band's material, I enjoy what I hear. I could see these guys opening for Death Cab (which they might or might not have, since their promoter cites Ben Gibbard's band about six times on the one sheet).
