THERE ONCE WAS A NOTE / Mike DeAngelis says - "...the sound of early “Jangle Rock” infused with post-punk, ambient guitar. That’s a brilliant combination that immediately captures the attention of anyone who fondly remembers that sound, and I’m one of those people. I loved the track I heard, “Waiting For Cake,”within seconds of hearing it.....…take that very specific sound, blend it with a post-punk Guthrie spin on top, and you have a major debut.....you’re going to listen to this E.P. and love it from front to back..."
STANDARD TRACK LISTING
First Sunday of Your Vacation
Waiting for Cake
RECORDS I LIKE said - "Inspired musically (and in the artwork too) by British post-punk bands such as Echo & The Bunnymen, The Sound and The Chameleons to name but a few the self titled debut from Ontario’s The Epigones is a mandatory listen.
The songs highlight and showcase the incredibly strong vocals and the band’s guitar based sound. The way these come together both structurally and melodically is impressive to say the least. Just check these songs out and the way the guitars jangle themselves senseless on First Sunday of Your Vacation is particularity astounding to these ears....."
