CD Review: Hit Or Miss - Seasons Come And Go

Hit Or Miss - Seasons Come And Go
2008, Hit Or Miss

Harrisburg, PA's Hit Or Miss combine the piano driven bravura of Ben Folds, the post-punk energy of early Green Day and the melodic sense of The Refreshments to deliver genre-bending post-punk pop delights. Their debut EP, 2008's Seasons Come And Go is a sonic treat and a great introduction to the band.

Hit Or Miss is Andy Zeller (vocals/guitar/piano), Travis Lehr (Drums) and Warren Gaughen (Bass). As a power trio Hit Or Miss manages to create a wall of sound much bigger than the collective part might seem to account for. Whether on the Foldsian Ifs, Ands or Buts; the straightforward rock of This Is My Life or the slow grind of Take It Slow, Hit Or Miss seem to be more the former than the latter. Hit Or Miss even seem to hit ballads solidly where they live, as shown on the track We Gave It All. By far the highlight of the disc is the track entitled "Acoustic Bonus". Taking away all distortion and effects just proves how talented Hit Or Miss really are.

Hit Or Miss is in a great position to keep pushing the envelope. With a full length release due in 2009, Hit Or Miss is a name you'll be hearing a lot about. For now, Seasons Come And Go is a great introduction!

Rating: 3.5 Stars (Out of 5)
