You gotta listen to any demo CD that has spray painted stencil work on it. It shows the band gave enough of a fuck to care about their Music, which, generally means said Music is worth listening to, and this 4 song EP from Common Tongue is definitely worth listening to. They're from somewhere in AZ., and I caught the band one night @ the Dive and was loving what they were playing, so after their set I asked them if they had any merch, and they said no, they didn't, but they gave me this CD for free, which was very cool of them to do. I like it. Pretty good sound for a first release, a little too Rancid like for my own personal taste, but that's OK - it takes nothing away from me digging them. :-) Upbeat, energetic, catchy songs with some cool vocal work courtesy of dual lead vocalists, and a guitar player who definitely knows how to play make this a copacetic listen. Loved the song Van Buren too, which, if you've ever been to AZ. before, then you know, that street has a weird vibe all it's own. Good stuff. You can check out their Facebook page by clicking here. Common Tongue. Cool band.
