Dead Stereo Boots - Yeah Yeah

Dead Stereo Boots
Yeah Yeah

Usually when starting up a Rock band you have at least a minimum of three to four members if not more as that’s usually the bare minimum but if you have anything less then that, you’re going to run into problems. Only time this rule is been irrelevant is if you are a one person band and I know a couple who pull it off well but others really don’t as some produce mediocre music that make you think “what on earth am I listening to?”

The reason I bring this up is because I am reviewing the new EP from a TWO, that’s right you heard me correct, two member band from France and straight away my suspicions are starting to kick in already but more of that in a bit. The band in question is a French Garage Rock duo called DEAD STEREO BOOTS who have a new EP coming out/already out (not sure which) entitled “Yeah Yeah” and I shall be reviewing it today.

I've heard a lot of different Rock genres since I started this job as a music journalist and I have come across some really weird genres in that time as well as the good ones and some of them have been absolute garbage such as Post-Hardcore music for example and that kind of speaks for itself when you listen to it and straight off the bat, I am going to add Garage Rock to the list as needless to say, I am less then impressed with this duos music.

Why? The genre should give you a bit of a clue: Garage Rock and the number of members should too so already things are smelling fishy. When you have a band who have just two members and specialize in an unusual genre, you can tell that it’s going to sound cheap and mediocre and that’s the case here. I don’t know if this was recorded in a professional studio or a garage studio but it doesn't matter either way as the production on it is a bit cheap and a bit crap in my opinion.

The first song is not too bad as it sounds quite professional which is sort of good I guess but then things start to go badly wrong when you listen to the second song which is slower compared to the first song and the drum sound is poor but when you hear some crowd voices in there and an applause with cheering at the end, you get the impression it was recorded at a gig and it probably was. Tracks three and four are just guitar and vocals (with some piano) and these are slow paced which usually I like but not here as I found myself getting bored.

It’s been a long time since I've been this harsh and this critical in a review but I was not really that impressed with this EP as I found it very mediocre and this is going straight into my computer’s recycle bin the moment I finish writing this review. That’s all I have to say so I’ll end this review here.
