Mistress and the Misters: Emic EP 

There's nothing really inspiring or intriguing about Mistress and the Misters' Emic EP. Upon hearing the first track, "Bone to Pick," my initial comparison would be to The Ramones, but the way Mistress and the Misters do it, it seems like they could be well-intentioned high school kids emulating their favorite punk bands. It's not terrible, it's just immature, though I liked "Consuela," a track which reminded me of early Red Hot Chili Peppers: simple funky rock complete with half-rap, half-singing reminiscent of Anthony Keidis.

On the upside, these guys work hard and clearly believe in their music. I saw a video of Mistress and the Misters playing a house party and they were rocking their asses off in tennis outfits—complete with short shorts and headbands—to about 20 teens practically beating themselves to a pulp in the mosh pit. Now there's some rock for ya. Plus, they're from Spokane, so they're almost local. And though I wasn't extremely impressed with Emic, I have faith and hope that this band continues to make records since they obviously have potential and their live show is electric.
