The District Attorneys – Orders From… EP [Album Review]

by Woody on March 4, 2011

Hailing from Atlanta and Athens, GA with vocals soaked in reverb, The District Attorneys are a 5-piece that just released an EP that points to a very bright future. The album was produced by Thomas Johnson and Carter King of The Futurebirds – an apt band for comparison.

Both bands are from Georgia. Both have released an EP that, while a little rough around the edges, shows great promise and lets their southern roots shine. The District Attorneys are a blend of Band of Horses and The Futurebirds with songs featuring giant hooks and even some Poison lyrics (Jerry Ten).

“Going To Carolina,” which is basically about going to Carolina, chugs along with some nice slide and harmonica over the ambling hook. “Splitsville” is a nice rabble-rouser with a tasty lick at the end. There are two songs for download below and the 7 song debut will have you humming along and tapping your feet.
