It was just this past September that I was telling anybody who would listen:
"L.A.-based EARLIMART have always been a bit too averse to verse-chorus-verse convention for me to ever feel overly cuddly and comfortable with them. That's probably just the way they wanted it."
I went on to point out that their 2007 release, MENTOR TORMENTOR, took them in a slightly more traditional direction (which pleased this musical traditionalist no end). The "band" is down to just AARON ESPINOZA and ARIANA MURRAY these days, and each continues to contribute songs and vocals to the now nine-year-old enterprise. Their latest album, HYMN AND HER, was released July 1.
