The Caribbean
William of Orange EP (Hometapes)

By: Alex Steininger

Washington D.C.'s latest, the William of Orange EP is a laid-back journey of indie-rock-meets-slumbering-pop. It is a serene, mellow, and breezy collection of loose guitars, piano, trickling percussion, and easy melodies. The record suffers from a same-same vibe, with each song blending into the other -- for your first few listens. Once you warm up to the disc, however, you get a better feeling of their ultra-relaxed indie-rock style and start to differentiate between each number. Until then, the record is a bore. Once you reach this point, however, it is a beautiful offering for those that want a steady beat, but don't want to rock out. It's cool, calm, and collective, but still makes a presence known. I'll give it a C+.
