CD Review: The Sammies 

The Deal: Locals The Sammies release sophomore disc, Sandwich, on Charlotte-based MoRisen Records.

The Good: The band shows maturity and some of the skills they've picked up along the way on the road to the new album without losing any of the flavor. Sure, some of the garage rock sound is gone, but not forgotten. Instead, the band delivers a more diverse set of 13 tracks. It kicks off with the indie rock of "Sleep in My Clothes," zips through two minutes of the '60s styling of "Golden Sun," gets heavy with "Treat Her Like a Queen" and nearly goes folk with "Old Grey."

The Bad: No complaints. While you may wish for them to pick one genre and stick with it, the band's diversity shows their talent through a common thread.

The Verdict: A solid second effort that makes you hope more people take notice of the talented quartet.
