City Weezle's eponymous EP is an exercise in musical schizophrenia ? blending funk, rock, and a jam-band ethos with a humorous lyrical viewpoint into a unique sound?


City Weezle have blended their influences into a surprisingly cohesive sound. The musicianship is excellent, and the songs are well crafted ? no surprises in structure or form to be found, but the acerbic lyrics ("Vampire Boy" in particular stands out) and the combination of soulfully gritty clean vocals with deathly rasps adds a snidely humorous touch to City Weezle.

The instrumentation and sound from song to song is almost identical, resulting in a one dimensional sound ? for a demo though the production is quite clean and professional.


3.5-/5 (the minus is for the brevity of the disc? 4 songs are too few to adequately review?)


City Weezle are capable musicians, and if they add to their palette of sounds and continue to deliver blackly humorous lyrics, they will find a niche for themselves?
