[FOLK ROCK] On their debut self-titled release, California-based four-piece the Mondegreens rely on tight three-part harmonies and vocals reminiscent of the Avett Brothers. Their style melds acoustic rhythm with sometimes fuzzy, sometimes twangy electric guitar licks. Bassist David Friedlander’s raw, soulful-meets-woeful rasp leads “Sharpen Your Claws” as heavy-blues-influenced electric riffs billow dangerously in and out of the background, while “Big City Blues” is an undemanding diddy backed by enough “oohs” and “ahs” to bring to mind a barbershop quartet. It’s not new by any means, but the Mondegreens get by on emotion alone—simple, harmony-driven emotion.
