La La Land Review

by Nitsuh Abebe

La La Land is the sort of album that can only come from a Texan band like Ed Hall -- like all of Ed Hall's many releases, its raunchy rock sound begins with overdriven guitar scrapings, underpinned by snaking basslines and long-armed drumming, then revs the whole mix up with vocals that testify and holler like nobody's business. This sort of down-home, over-the-top rock has its appeal, but it can also sound rather silly -- this irony may be part of the gameplan with a band like Ed Hall, but it's still bound to leave a lot of more serious-minded listeners cold.
