A Collection Of Demos: Vol. 1 & 2

With an album produced by post-hardcore juggernaut producer Kris Crummett in the can, San Diego’s Idlehands—who formed barely a year ago—are out to “resurrect the dying trade” of being in a band, says vocalist Johnny O’Hagan. “We have been categorized under the sound of progressive rock, but are not limited to any [one] genre.” Indeed, Idlehands’ demos show great promise, from O’Hagan’s soulful melodies to the spacey guitar leads threading through each song. “Absolute creativity isn’t as common as musicians attempt to say it is,” O’Hagan says. “We strive to play the best music possible.”
