First Look: Cody The Band – S/T EP

As only a haphazard ¬†advocate of Los Angeles bands, it’s interesting to hear Cody The Band’s clear connections to the scene — “A Tree Falls Down” alone touches on the twangy country-pop of Jenny Lewis, the fleshed-out ’70s ambition of Jon Brion, the unfettered joy of the World Record or Le Switch. The group recorded at Rockets Red Glare, which has produced a number of Southland gems (The Broken West, The Idaho Falls) and can now add the¬†Cody The Band EP to its jewelry collection. Buy local, folks (or better, download for free from iLike.)
