The Record Collection – Revolutions EP
When Indy of Coin Toss Records asked me if I would be interested in reviewing The Record Collection I was a bit confused. It took me some time to figure out he wasn’t asking me to review an entire collection, but a 4 song EP by a band called The Record Collection. It wasn’t one of my brightest moments, but the name is a bit confusing if you ask me.
Now that we got that out of the way, let’s get on with this EP. It’s announced to us as a mix of The Gaslight Anthem, Tim Barry and Bruce Springsteen. Is that true? Well, I can hear those influences here. But I also sense a strong 90’s vibe here. There’s some light grunge influences, a bit of the alternative rock you heard a lot back in the days and a bit of Social Distortion for good measure. Blend it and you’ll end up with The Record Collection’s EP Revolutions. The four songs on here are not exactly groundbreaking, but pretty rad. The band offers nothing new, but I can picture myself hanging out with my friends in the sun with this blasting through the stereo. In other words, a perfect EP for the summer!
