Six Red Carpets – Vanilla Scent

As much as I try to stick with the old way of picking up entire records, I’m finding myself drawn more and more to single tracks. I’m meticulous about archiving all of my mp3s and try and keep full albums together if at all possible. But lately I’ve been using shuffle pretty often and I tend to end up listening to a lot of crap in my collection, i.e. songs from comps, tracks that were recorded live and sound horrible, or bands that I really only liked one or two songs but I still imported the entire record. That’s a little bit of the case with the new Six Red Carpets release. First off, they are putting the entire record out there for free in a multitude of formats, so I have to applaud them for that. A lot of bands are starting to do that, but these guys actually have songs worth downloading, this one in particular, which was the first track I heard off of the record. My biggest complaint is the rest of the tracks on the record go in a bit of a different direction, or directions would be more precises. There doesn’t seem to be a lot of focus on what they are going for except the persistent overtone of that Smashing Pumpkinssound throughout. It’s worth downloading to check out the entire record, but you may find yourself a bit letdown after hearing this song. I can’t complain too much though, they certainly aren’t the first band who had a “hit single” and the rest of the record was average.
