If you follow Scenepointblank you might be aware I like The Carvels NYC. So a new EP by their hand is good news in my book. Even if it only has three tracks and leaves me hungry for more. Again.
This is going to be a short review. There is not much new to mention about this EP. The artwork again is top notch. I really dig this style! The music is still NY punk styled songs. The Carvels NYC waste no time with intros, they just start playing so you can get partying. Second track "Late Night Heart" somehow has a bit of The Misfits Project 1950 vibe. It fits them like a glove. It is not the best track on here though, for that you need to check opener "Bitter Pill". If you remember my reviews of the previous EP’s you’ll remember I really enjoy singer Lynne’s voice. As on the previous EP’s she steals the show here.
We now know The Carvels know how to pen a good track. They know how to pace an EP. It’s time for the next challenge: can they deliver an album that manages to keep you on the edge of your seat the whole time?
8.0 / 10
Is artwork an important part of a record? I tend to think so. I am bit old-school and like to listen to a record with the cover in my hand ...
