CD Review: Mermaid Bones EP

Mermaid Bones EP CD (no label)
Landing in Oakland after time spent in Hawaii, former Chicago resident and ex-Hog Lady guitar player, Dave Gill, makes a return to music after a decade out of the "scene" (so to speak). The self-titled debut EP from Oakland's Mermaid Bones features five songs sung by the nautical chanteuse Sophia, (yes, an actual mermaid). The EP opens with the jazzy "Casio Casino" but "A" goes full on hard rock with a Black Sabbath sized riff which showcases the M. Bones ability to alternate between slow jams and fast rockers—H.C. Anderson [Mermaid Bones]
