Brooklyn's Rhino House Band have just released their debut EP, Golden Summer. The five tracks are pop-pupower-pop in the vein of Weezer and similar groups. The band of Ricky Demetro, Joey Vergara and Steven Bartashev serve up melodic, fun and solid songs. Unfortunately, what is lacking is any real energy or edge. The record feels like the performances are overly sanitized and the production doesn't help this. The songs are there, the band just needs to let loose a bit and let them find a life with some energy. All in all a good EP, but one that feels like there could be much more.
