Can Annuals Make a Comeback?

In 2006, one of the real bright spots was the debut by North Carolina sextet Annuals. 'Be He Me' was full of experimental art pop and quirky harmonies. Critics and major labels loved it, too. As we have seen far too many times, the band signed with one of the big boys for their sophomore effort, and it tanked both critically and commercially. Well, Annuals are indie again, and we have a first listen at their new five-song EP, 'Sweet Sister,' out March 30. If "Loxtep" is any indication, Annuals have returned to the sound that made them a sensation just a few short years ago. The $8 asking price over at Amazon is a little steep for five songs, but it sounds like it will be worth it.
