"The melody's in the music...and we're not gonna lose it." Carlisle Sound began in 2001 at 6 1/2 Carlisle St. Cambridge, MA. Every member of the groop plays in another band that is far more popular than the Sound. Andrew the drummer owns Pants Yell!, Rocco's got Reports, Alex rides the Ponies in the Surf, and Casey is a current member of Major Stars.
The Reports, as name dropped in the little factoid above, grace the other side of this wax. Tough they would become more prolific than Carlisle Sound, "The Hostess" is merely ok slacker indie-rawk, noisy at the beginning, hushed towards the end, and moreover, too non-descript and ineffectual. You can check out a handful of much more proficient Reports tunes on their Myspace page. BTW, since this single appears to still be available through Paper Cities Records, I'm only going to leave this up for a few days. If you like what you hear, you know the drill.
