Straight outta Akron, this female-fronted quintet unleashes a five-song, 22-minute EP that deftly demonstrates why Bethesda has garnered such high acclaim in its home state. Dreamtiger‘s opening track, “A Song for the Peasant Farmer”, displays vocalist Shanna Delaney’s unique phrasing and the unique interplay between her and her bandmates, guitarists Eric Ling and Jesse Sloan, bassist Dan Corby, drummer Justin Rife. “Oh, How We Crane Our Throats!” is as whimsical and memorable as its title, while “Homage” may be the prettiest track here. Curiously, the band seems at its strongest when focusing on mellower material, though “Upon This Rock” and the closing “Dreamtiger” are hardly disappointing.
