CD Review: The Sidekicks Are Bringing Their "Breeds" To Connecticut

Indie-rockers The Sidekicks are hitting the road for a late-summer tour in support of their year-old album "Awkward Breeds." They visit Connecticut on August 31st after a few stops north of the border in Canada.

The band's sound on this latest release is raw, almost punk-like as in the opening song "DMT" and the follow-up "Grace." The Sidekicks show off their great energetic sound on "Peacock," before heading into a more mainstream sound on "Incandescent Days." The crunchy guitars and big bang of "Diamond Eyes" and "Jonah And The Whale" show the attractive grunge sound that has brought success to the likes of Weezer and Cake. The band changes gears for the acoustic demo sounding "Looker," before closing the album with the big rock sound of "Baby, Baby" and the spaced out punk-styling of "Daisy."

Please check out the band Facebook page ( for a complete list of tour dates and for more information on this outstanding indie-rock band.
