Although the grunge influence has waned and more diverse music is emanating from the Northwest, there is plenty of angst left in the Seattle music scene. Panda & Angel
do their best to lament heartache and loneliness on their self-titled EP for Jade Records. The band recorded six tracks in Seattle's famed Avast Studios (The Shins, Death Cab for Cutie, Sleater-Kinney) and are set for a West Coast to support the EP, which has a release date of July 25th. Despite the melancholy lyrics on tunes like Dangerous
, one has to think life is pretty good for these guys right now.
