Cold Showers – “Love and Regret” – [Dais]
This band from Los Angeles goes through the paces of slower and faster rock (with the latter half of the CD picking up speed). Percussion is impressive, especially in the energetic songs (7), and the vocals sometimes sound as though they are British-influenced. Male vocals prevail (except there’s a feminine touch in 2), with lyrics printed on sleeve. “Seminary” (8) indicates a special confusion about the dueling claims of spirit over body, duty over love. There’s even a bonus track at the end to mull over.
