The Chordaes – “The Chordaes”

Big voice, nice arrangements, but kinda sappy. Walking the Jeff Buckley tight-rope is a tough task for any singer, this band shows you why. Without that embedded soul and pain that Buckley had, any singer who attempts it, comes across as stale, and over-reaching. The Chordaes (horrible name) fall into that category. There are some really nice songs here, but the effort doesn’t equal the talent needed to make these type of songs work. That being said, there are some very pretty indie rock soul numbers here.
