Or at least so I thought.
The first go around on any album is like an awkward first date. You just need to have one more to see if its a good fit.
And it was.
The key to listening to The Employees is turning the volume up!
Their a psychedelic rock/jam band out of Chicago. There are loads of guitar solos that just make your spine tingle. It left me no doubt that they could put one hell of a show on live.
The four-piece band led by Chris Bobowiec on the vocals, covers the depression of the economy, corruption in politics/big business, environmental disasters, unemployment, the death of the American dream.
Some how they manage to cover all that in only 10 tracks, that’s a talented band I say.
One of my favorite tracks on the album is “Winter Round Here,” “Panic” is another good one. It’s got a nice melody and will definitely have you singing along to it if you’ve got a few beers in you.
They may be new on the music work’s force, but they definitely deserved to be hired (sorry, couldn’t help myself).
