]The Flowers of God
still haven't even played their first show -- a problem frontman and former Lift to Experience drummer Andy Young promises to remedy on December 17 at Denton's Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios -- but with just four songs to their name, the band, which also features members of The Baptist Generals, Bosque Brown, History at Our Disposal, Stumptown and The Deathray Davies, has established itself as an act worth watching in the months and years to come.
Yes, its EP In & Out of Love with The Flowers of God
is that impressive of a debut, thanks to its slackerish, early '70s-recalling vibe -- a vibe pushed to the front and center of the band's "Tunnelvisionary" track, which finds the band getting a little assist from Denton's pride and joy d'jour.
