Fire Drills Review:
Computer vs. Banjo is a cool band name and guess what - it actually is pretty literal to describe this Nashville duo's sound. It is an odd pairing but I must say it totally works for the band because they use guitars, drum machines and banjos along with synths and mandolins that create a sort of digital-folk melting pot. The instruments alone might make their self-titled debut a mess but they all strategically support the indie pop vocals and end result which is completely additive.

Key Track: "Guitars Need A Sinner's Touch"
