Idoleyes: Come With Me

Come With Me cover art
As a rule this blog does not do negative reviews. If we don't like it, we don't write about it. Every once in a while though, we come across a record that we like, but alas, cannot be completely positive about. Such is the case with Come With Me, the debut EP from L.A. garage band Idoleyes. The five tracks are a testament to everything good about garage music. The EP is raw, heavy, driving, has some nice dynamic changes, etc. Everything good so far. The problem is that Idoleyes sound like The Strokes. Not in the influenced by sense, but in the completely authentic looking Chinese copy sense. It's unfortunate as this is a really, really good band and record. So if you like knock off clothing and wear a fake Rolex, then Idoleyes are the band for you.
