  • Repairing the Family
    By Jay Grummel Earlier this month I wrote about fond families, however the holidays are made up of many different types of families. Some will be hostile and dysfunctional or some will be loving and understanding. Whatever your family looks like this season, it’s always nice to read about ones other than your own. So, […]
  • Review of The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes
    Let’s time-travel to the year 2012 and the world is raving about none other than Katniss Everdeen. I remember being in elementary school, begging my mother to let me dress up as her for my birthday. Now it’s over ten years later and I’m still just as excited for the new movie as I was […]

Koufax-“Hard Times are in Fashion”

Koufax are back with ‘Hard Times Are In Fashion,’ and could move up a bit higher in the indie nation.

The journey starts out with the heart-pumping, ‘Why Bother At All,’ and is followed by the groovy, laid-back sound of ‘Back and Forth.’ The middle part of the album, with songs like ‘Blind Faith’ and ‘Get Us Sober,’ shows the versatility of the group with a sound reminiscent of Coldplay.

However, there are some parts that aren’t so great. ‘Five Years of Madness’ and ‘Trouble Will Find You,’ don’t really bring much more to the table..

The rest of the album goes with the flow the first couple of tracks lead into. The songs from here go into a stage that a good portion of albums have a tendency to start sounding the same.

Much of the tracks have the same sound pounding of the keys with and a jam with guitar and bass and drums that follow their lead, then slows down with the chorus.

With the album starting out with six strong tracks, it loses its momentum with the lower part of the album following the same structure.

There are some great tracks on here, most memorably ‘Back and Forth,’ and the graceful ‘Blind Faith.’

Listening to the first part, I was hoping the rest of the tracks would deliver, but they didn’t. It makes you wonder with a little bit more work the band could make it they have talent and Bowling Green’s support.
