The Roosevelt - EP Review

I'm trying to figure out whether The Roosevelt is truly comprised of four brothers, or whether they are creating some falsity a la Jack White. If they are brothers, The Roosevelt is no Hanson. Delivering a southern dipped sound with vocals suitable for introspective, dry humored folks, The Roosevelt present a slight enough divergence from the likes of Wilco to attract the eccentric. EP, and specifically "Codeine Cure", even offers a bit of the Luna sound, which is promising for those of us who considered Luna's passing one of the musical tragedies of 2006. "Now that Annie's gone to Philly/I'll be looking for a Codeine Cure/Maybe something more," is delivered by Jon Mosher in the Dean Wareham tone. Still, The Roosevelt is yet to open an album with anything comparable to a few jazz chords and, "Is there a doctor in the house?/In the house of pancakes." Until then, The Roosevelt EP is mildly impressive, and the smile is not quite cheeky.

Tracks added to Ipod: Coney Island, Elliot, Codeine Cure
