Supercrush: Supercrush (Self Released)

This band is a nice part of the St. Louis music scene, and if people check out the CD, they are not likely to turn it off and walk away disappointed.

Orange Crush has never been one of my favorite drinks. In fact, I can vividly recall drinking a can of it at a picnic when I was a child and then throwing up under a tree. Luckily, the Supercrush CD has a far happier ending and is much easier to develop a taste for.

“Awake,” the final track of the recording, is a great example of this St. Louis band’s work. It has the right hooks and melody that a laid-back, guitar pop band can hope for. Ryan Hoelting sings in a great, melodic vocal style that can be hard to come by.

While I’m a bit surprised by the choice to put such a great song at the very end of the disc, this is not to say that other songs don’t stand out as well. “Weekend Friend” has a memorable hook, and “Walk Away” is another strong track.
