All to often we discriminate based on the bandÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s name even though that really doesnÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢t have much, if anything to do with the music itself. Seemingly stupid I know but it happens. Kaddisfly fell into that category for me, a band that IÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢d heard in passing but never had enough interest based on their name to check out. Though IÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢m sorry I hadnÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢t checked them out sooner.
Kaddisfly is a band that reminded me right of the bat of a more pop, more mainstream friendly version of Brazil (fearless records). ThatÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s not to say one band is better or worse, merely comparing the similarities. Intricate guitar parts, soaring vocals and typically quick spoken (sung) lyrics make up the EP Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”The Four SeasonsÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬?. These songs are tremendously catchy, and pull you in very quickly. For example the song Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”CampfireÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? starts with the lyrics Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”welcome to your life, you better watch your stepsÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã‚¦Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬? and even after those few words itÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s hooked you.
This EP is a preview of what to expect from KaddisflyÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s upcoming album in which every song will be representing a different month (12 songs), and the songs will be grouped in threes, with each group representing a different season (4 seasons). ItÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢s a really cool concept although I just donÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢t know how well it will turn out. Each of the songs on the EP was from a different Ãƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã…”seasonÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬?, but I couldnÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢t tell and thus leads me to think that the concept part of the record will be lost on people, however it doesnÃƒ¢Ã¢”š¬Ã¢”ž¢t take away from the music.
