Matt Kollar and the Angry Mob, 'She Changes Face' EP
The Judgement: The sound of Matt Kollar and the Angry Mob takes an eclectic twist on the She Changes Face EP (out March 5). It's chock full of accordions, keyboard, guitars, intertwining harmonies and jaunty rhythms. Building on the organic, folk-driven songs and slightly distorted voices of front man/guitarist Kollar and vocalist Elizabeth Messick, the band hits the ground running with an array of down and dirty blues, airy adult pop and hum-a-long melodies.
The EP's opening title-track features stabs of poppy piano and an energetic burst of ragtime-meets-folk pop. Matching Kollar's semi-weathered vocals with swells of accordion and meandering trumpet, it's an infectiously fun start to a record that keeps the happy vibes going on other tracks like "Driftin' Blues."
