[STREAM] The District Attorneys – “Wrecking Ball”

The District Attorneys call Georgia home, but their sound is pure California country rock.  Smooth with a slight twang; sometimes hazy, never sloppy.  The six songs on the recently released Waiting on the Calm Down: The Basement Sessions EP display warm, mannered songcraft that shows significant growth from the band’s earlier efforts.  The songs are demos in advance of the band’s soon to be recorded full length, but they’re free of the basement scuzz that the word demo usually connotes.  Hopefully an added layer of polish won’t take away the warmth that’s one of the EP’s greatest strengths.
