EP of the Day: Wiretree

Wiretree's EP came out about a year ago, and it didn't seem to get the buzz it deserved. Not Lame said it best:
(The) first song here "Give It Up" sounds like an incredible update of The Smithereens "Blood And Roses", classic, classic, classic! The Smithereens comparison remains on the rest of the material, but "Down The Way I Walk" manages to sound like a fantastically, insanely catchy acoustic demo of a unreleased Billy Corgin playing with Tom Petty song. Speaking of Tom Petty, "Find A Way" sounds like the great lost song from The Travelling Wilburys or "Full Moon Fever"-era Petty.
"Find a Way" is awesome. The piano break in the middle is worth the price of admission alone. Get the samples at the cdbaby page.

"Find a way" is definately a great tune. Very classical piano solo mixed-in with a Beatlesque backgound. Reminds me of the "In My Life" solo.

Looks like Wiretree is putting out a full length album by the end of the year.
