It's always exciting to catch something from the very beginning with the Brantford, Ontario-based band BAD REED who have just issued their self-titled debut EP. For a recording with only three songs on it, the musical ground that gets covered is quite expansive covering jazz, blues and progressive rock and even some electronic flourishes. The band - comprised of GRAHAM WALKER on guitars, SYDNEY SOLLAZZO on vocals and keyboards, AUSTIN THARPE on bass and COSTA CHATZIS on drums and percussion - is certainly not afraid to experiment but there is something inviting and accessible about the experimentation at hand here. This premiere effort is worth a few extra listens.
