3. It's pretty cool...
First thought was that it sounds kinda like stripped-down Lenny Kravitz.

5. And here is what the critic had to say,........
halliburton(s)

In this day and age cynicism is perhaps looked upon
as the only answer, with decisions made not to
maximize good, but to minimize evil (on a personal
level). However, some people have mined a much richer
vein, that of righteous indignation. Indignation is
the light created by the fires of cynicism; it is the
purifying flame of cynicism pushed beyond the point of
idleness. Indignation is what happens when you realize
that indifference, no matter how hip it might appear,
is a dead-end street. Luckily, while some people just
ignore the big issues (out of fear or ignorance - it
amounts to the same thing, doesn't it?) or avoid doing
anything but pissing in the wind, there are bands like
the halliburton(s), a band that has decided that to
remain idle is to endorse evil. Featuring the musical
leadership of jazz protg Nathan Bell, the
halliburton(s) offer up funky, acoustic based tunes
that allow the listen to groove while absorbing and
digesting the lyrics, intelligent (and often humorous)
lyrics of righteous indignation and scathing attacks
on the current regime that has pushed the United
States into a despicable war that serves only to fill
corporate coffers. With a sound like Lenny Kravitz
unplugged and lyrics that might have brought a smile
to Joe Hill or Woodie Guthrie, the halliburton(s)
offer up a tight little EP that reminds you that it's
our duty not just to question authority, but to ACT on
the questions that are raised. Formed with a clear-cut
goal of ousting George W. the halliburton(s) attack
their target with dogged determination, pointing out
the personal and political shortcomings of the current
regime with humor and insight and encouraging dissent
and opposition to their policies and positions. This
little EP, recorded and released independently, is
like the stone from David's sling, with the Bush
administration being the Goliath on the receiving end.
Musically, the halliburton(s) offer tunes that are the
sugar that helps their medicine (message) go down.
Tasty treats await those who want more than a rhymed
equivalent of Noam Chomsky, because their mellow,
jazzy acoustic grooves are worth the price of
admission alone. Don't be afraid to speak up, don't be
afraid to be moved to action, don't be afraid to
listen to the halliburton(s), and, most importantly,
don't be afraid to "Lick Bush".
