Mothers, Sisters, Daughters & Wives EP

The five hairdos in Voxtrot balance an American Apparel, pop sensibility with infectious melodies that outshine the fashionably feeble aspects of the group. Crafting a sound that falls somewhere between Love and the Smiths, the five songs that make up the EP tread the line between sap and genuinely heartbreaking.

"Four Long Days" exudes melancholy catchy enough to melt any heart within earshot. "MSD&W" and "Soft & Warm" swell with grandiose emoting tempered a guitar that's just as polite to the drums as the piano is to the breezy vocals. Such syrupy songs could easily wear thin in larger quantities, but five songs keep it short,sweet and leave you wanting for just a bit more.

Voxtrot plays the Drunken Unicorn Mon., April 3.
