Robert & the Carrolls = Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros – Avett Brothers
Can’t get enough Mumford & Sons? Want to be ahead of the curve on the next band from Provo destined to hit it big? Robert & the Carrolls are for you. Everything about this EP is polished and presentable, if bland and anonymous, and the same goes for the model shots on their Facebook page and their (premature?) branding. On these four songs, I hear a lot more Robert than the Carrolls––I’m not sure what the six people on the album cover are playing. They look great, though.
