Siblings & Sevens
Luther - Siblings & Sevens

Luther decided to open “Sibling & Sevens” with their only acoustic track, only to break it off abruptly and dive headfirst into the distortion and pounding drums of “This Is Like Fight Club”. Odd choice but hey… why the hell not? The rest of the songs on havemore of a natural flow and linger between punk, alternative rock, indie,…. There’s actually a bit of everything going on here in just seven songs and so it may take a while to sink in. But once it clicks, it sticks.

Just think of older Gaslight Anthem if you will or go a little south of the Menzingers (and not just because Tom May helps out on “There’s Always Money”). Not all of the songs on here make an equally lasting impression but overall this is a welcome release that shows a lot of raw, untapped potential.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
