Sholi: Dreams Before People [EP]

Dreams Before People [EP]
Self-Released [2008]

Fire Drills Review:

This avant-rock trio from the San Fran area are ready to take the indie world by storm. This is a tour only EP that showcases their capabilities in a small package. The group has a very mellow vibe with their soft vocals and calm strumming, while each song has an inner layer that is completely infectious. The EP concludes with "Hejrat" which is a cover song from Googoosh that puts a exclamation point on Sholi's range. Their new self-titled record releases on Quaterstick Records 2/17/09 which should be great if it follows this formula! Make sure you visit to Touch and Go/Quaterstick for a free download of this EP.
