Empty-Handed - Self-titled EP

Self-titled EP

Empty-Handed = Cat Stevens + Counting Crows


This band could probably sell 3,000 copies of this EP on the U of U campus in a couple hours. “I need time to think this whole life through/I’m so sick and tired of feeling blue” warbles Empty-Handed on “This Life” while alt-countryish emo arpeggios with a wicked pan in “Caution” make you feel like you’re in a washing machine. All quite mediocre, but not necessarily so off-putting that you’ll push open the door of said washing machine and struggle to escape drowning. –musiclife47@hotmail.com
