Wild Sweet Orange – We Have Cause To Be Uneasy

Wild Sweet Orange

Wild Sweet Orange is the best band I’ve heard that’s named after tea. I first heard of the Birmingham, AL outfit last year when they released The Whale EP and I’ve been anxiously awaiting We Have Cause To Be Uneasy after hearing the riveting track, “Ten Dead Dogs.” It’s been worth the wait.

Some of the music featured on HearYa is a bit on the obscure side. Another blogger once labeled us “hard core indie.” I’m not sure that’s an appropriate description, since we tend to lean toward music with twang, but I digress. Like recently reviewed band, Everest, Wild Sweet Orange don’t require much time to grow on you.

Their music is very accessible and We Have Cause To Be Uneasy isn’t just a one trick pony. “Ten Dead Dogs” is followed up by slow, contemplative songs like “Seeing is Believing” and “Sour Milk” and then my urge for twang is satisfied when the banjo sneaks in on “An Atlas to Follow.” It’s a well produced album with a big grown up sound for a band of newcomers.

Reminds me a little of Howie Day. That said, I like it.
