Order fast... though- after Sept 1, they go back to regular pricing! My kind of Freak is a philosopy it's a way of looking at life. It's a tribute to all those folks who have embraced the characteristics of themselves that may, in some circles get them branded a 'Freak'. Embrace the Freakdom! This CD has alot of joy. A good dose of introspection, peppered with a persistent addiction to the collective unconscience. The Locals are a 4 headed musical monster. Goldie (violin), Buss (drums), Christy (bass) and Yvonne (vocals acoustic guitar). Each member has a distinct and unique background and relationship with music. Influences of this group range from the Indigo Girls, to Jane's Addiction, to PJ Harvey to Clutch. Some reviews of the disc: 'Oh, this is alternative, and energized like the shock of seeing an old girl/boyfriend, like the sparks that click your hand when you reach for the cold, metal doorknob. ' ben ohmart, musesmuse.com 'aGGressiVe folk-rock comes to mind. Like the mUsIcal cHiLd of Dave Matthews and Indigo Girls. Yvonne's lyrics are about strength and positivity... if there is one thing that sets this band apart from the crowd, it's the lyrics and voice of Yvonne Doll. . . . 'music for people who read the lyrics, but still want to wake the neighbors from time to time.' I'm thinking the neighbors might want to come on over and enJoY the tUnes...' -Cate Nolan, MetroMix.com.
