Darcy Malone & the Tangle, “Make Me Over” (Independent)

r-10615367-1500993130-7451-jpegAll four tracks show the band at its most aggressive: Darcy Malone does some of her bluesiest wailing (the choruses of “Time to Be Free” get into serious roof-shaking territory); guitarist John Paul Carmody and saxophonist Jagon Eldridge both get chances to blast. I’m not usually a big fan of EPs—if you’ve got the stuff, it makes more sense to go for an album—but this one works as something live and immediate, a band feeling confident for good reason.
