Review: Lemuria – Get Better [2008]

Buffalo, NY trio Lemuria play a type of female-led, male-response vocal rock that takes its cues from 90’s indie rock. Get Better is a 12-track offering laden with a slight guitar crunch that rocks hard on “Mechanical” and follows the sticky sweet little girl melody on “Get Some Sleep,” helping this band shed its innocuous nature just enough to give the group an edge. While at times Lemuria succumbs to Warped Tour-esque pandering reserved for the likes of Paramore (“Dogs”), there’s enough of the Sunny Day Real Estate and Jawbreaker vibe permeating through cuts like “Wardrobe” and “Dog” for those who want to rekindle past glories. www.asianmanrecords.comMike SOS
