Extra Life is an experimental music outfit whose new album, Dream Seeds, has been gaining some good press on a handful of blogs I follow. Every time I've come across a post on the band's music, I've tried it; hoping that it would finally start to resonate with me.
While I can't say I'm really in love with the music Extra Life plays, it is eccentric and distinctive enough to share. While Extra Life's music contains elements that will be familiar to you--folk, noise, musical theater, classical--the trio combines these ideas into a way that's somewhat striking.
