EP Review: The Great Escape EP

Title:  The Great Escape EP (BandCamp, Secret People Records)  

Turf War plays some of the best Americana twinged power pop that I’ve ever heard.  The Great Escape EP sounds like a record born of equal parts “Twist and Shout” era Beatles, “World Class Fad” era Paul Westerberg, “Sally, I’ve Been Shot” era Two Cow Garage, “Chasing Heather Crazy” era Guided By Voices, and Bash & Pop.  The best thing about this EP is that it is just plain fun to listen to.  The guys in Turf War obviously love what they are doing and that comes through in their music.  The Great Escape EP is an outstanding release and sure to be one of 2013’s best.
