CD REVIEW: Folding Edifice - Folding Edifice
By Ben Ohmart - 05/21/2007 - 10:34 AM EDT

Artist: Band: Folding Edifice
Genre: Pop/Rock
CD Review:
If ever there was a group deserving of the title pop/rock, it's the FE that produced this power pop EP. They do it all: great recording, great playing, and the singing's distinctive with a good element to pitch thru, like water conducting electricity. Can be still and beautiful, and it could ripple like a floppy tide or a crunchy potato chip. 'Sherman Oaks' rocks us into being, a guitar lick worthy of anything already famous. After that, my 2nd favorite would have to be the 2nd song, 'Stain'. I like the way the vocals lift up into the sky, like a squint at the sun. It's a modern ballad that really goes to the wall of lite rock, and sports some nice, too short harmonies among the keen songwriting talent. Whoever the Beatles of this generation are, they've got nothing on these guys, who are indeed being helped on by some name-brand producing talent. I can see right away why they're recording in the Beach Boys' old studio. I've been playing this EP longer than just about any other EP I can remember getting my hands on. I hope they send me the full album they come up with, if they want another rave.
