Bless their hearts, Enemymine sound just like your kid brother's angst rock band, and you have to love them for it. Enemymine uses twin bass guitars to make some nice noises that can create a pulsating, warm, and gloomy mood. Think of what Japan's Ruins would sound like, if they'd grown up on a steady diet of The Melvins. Enemymine's music is pervaded by a somber tone that's characteristically Northwestern, and that's a good thing. But the songs on this EP seem to wander at times, and that detracts from the overall effect of the recording.
Hopefully Enemymine's 1999 tour was a good test of what this three-piece could really get going. Knowing the musical histories that certain members of the group bring to this project - the legendary Godheadsilo and second generation 'slowcore' rockers Low - I think its fair to assume that in terms of what this record promises, Enemymine's next album will more than deliver.
Enemymine's debut CD is available through K Records
