The Yarrows Have Arrived

Wheat, The Yarrows; Verona Downs
@ Mercury Lounge
New York, NY - April 29, 2007

Indeed, the Yarrows are sound better than ever. The songs have complete structure, the band can finesse it rather than meander, and as a unit, they are clicking as a complete, solid, whole. They are still hard to define and slap with a label, which is good. I'd stick 'em on a bill with the Volebeats or the Changes, if that would give some set of boundaries.
Wheat is an eclectic outfit, starting off with a hint of alt-country and taking it down various indie paths. They suffered from major sound tech problems but the goods are there.
Verona Downs are also somewhat hard to define, except under that big umbrella of "indie pop". Pretty good band but not much to say about them.
