Music Review: Old Wars

Old Wars
Broken Bones
Cassingle and Loving It Records
November 2011

Kathy Mendonca, former drummer of the Gossip, has joined up with Jen Moon to form Portland’s newest duo, Old Wars. Their first release, a bright red cassette off newborn label, Cassingle and Loving It Records, strikes some strong chords right off the bat with “Broken Bones” — a ballad that evokes the vocal elasticity of Karen O and filtered swag of early-Kills Alison Mosshart. The album, at large, is an ode to pop rock via drum and bass medleys.

Listen to this: on your maiden voyage to the Northwest.

— Anika Sabin
